He has been called the “Granddaddy of Hedge Fund Manager,” George Soros is by far the most successful investor of all time. The only other person that comes to mind with similar type success is Warren Buffett whose Oracle of Omaha fund has had a very impressive returns for many years. In a recent article in MarketWatch the question is asked, will we ever see investors with such powerful track records as like these two men? The premise is that if Mr. Soros and Mr. Buffett were baseball players they would have the equivalent of a .400 batting average. This would put them in a league with Ted Williams one of America’s most beloved baseball players. Ted Williams had a batting average of .400 during his career. The very interesting comparison begins to take shape when we realized that Williams was indeed the very last baseball player to ever have a .400 batters hitting average way back in 1941.And no one has since seen those type of numbers.
In 1996 a book was written by Stephen J. Gould called, Full House: The Spread of Excellence from Plato to Darwin, it examined why baseball had not produced another .400 hitter since Ted Williams last played in 1941. The author argues that the overall quality of performance in baseball has improved over time and this is why no one will likely ever bat .400 again. If we transpose that argument for baseball to the world of finance we pretty quickly realized that, simply put; Marketwatch investors have changed. With the use of high-tech gadgetry like the iPhone and computer software, the playing field in the finest markets has changed drastically. Mr. Soros predicted earlier this year that the markets may collapse in a big way like in 2008. Mr. Soros sees many of the same signals present today that were present in 2008.

George Soros foretold the economic crisis that was experienced in the year 2008. There were major setbacks in economic factors such as mortgage crisis, banks collapsed, government bailout and many more factors. Major economic hub countries were in debts and increased interest rates. This was a big blow to investors who lost value on the capital investments woo unto them if they had lent their years to the economic analyst.
In a recent economic status forum held in Sri-Lanka, George Soros predicted on Street.com an economic recession similar to the one of 2008 crisis to happen in the year2016.

Soros warned the investors to make viable decisions on matters investment, putting his prophecy in consideration. Day by day, stocks are losing value an indication that all is not well.
