Securus Technologies Unite with Allies

Prison Communication

We need to promote companies who not only use their products to make money, but also use their products to make our world safer. This is one form of the growing movement of social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship, as I define it, is the world view that businesses should also be contributing to society. Securus Technologies is an American for-profit Business the also believes in making a world more safe

 

Founded in 1986, they are now the nation’s largest provider of civil and criminal technologies, products used for investigating, correcting, and monitoring inmates, and creating solutions to increase public safety.

 

They started their company in Dallas, Texas. However, as more than twenty four hundred facilities in America hired them, as well as two thousand facilities in Canada, they were forced to expand to Allen, Texas, Carrollton, Texas, and ultimately, Atlanta, Georgia.

 

The passion that drives them the most is to decrease crime that prisoners inflict upon other prisoners. One reason that these crimes happen, is that prisoners are not monitored correctly inside correctional facilities. Securus Technologies came to the conclusion that if they were to monitor the prisoners, they would need some way of doing it.

 

Securus Technologies then decided to give all prisoners cell phones that they themselves made. This allowed guards in the prison to detect crimes and investigate them prior to happening.

 

Securus Technologies then saw a dramatic decrease in crime in those facilities who use their products. Being encouraged, they decided to create more products to increase safety in correctional facilities. They dedicated over 600 million dollars to producing these technologies. Because of this, Securus Technologies now creates a brand new product every single week.

 

Seeing their success, the Harris Corporation approached them for a multimillion-dollar deal. Both businesses are now worth over a few billion dollars.

George Soros Discusses The Threat Posed By Capitalism

Business Expansion, Business Management

Looking at the life and career of George Soros one may believe he is the prime example of the success achievable in the capitalist system currently dominating the U.S. However, in an article for The Atlantic the hedge fund manager and founder of Soros Fund Management has recently sought to explain the threat he believes is threatening the safety and security of the world as the system is now so dominant it is unrivalled across the majority of the world; the capitalist threat is a threat to the world in the view of George Soros because in the open society the octogenarian believes in more than one political ideology being found in a community to make sure a single policy does not dominate.Over the course of his life, George Soros is reported by the Open Society Foundations to have lived under a series of different political ideologies.

The Hungarian born investment specialist was a youth when his home nation was invaded by Nazi forces bringing fascism and the Holocaust to his doorstep in 1943. Liberation came for Hungary and the Soros family who hid their Jewish faith with the arrival of Allied forces at the close of World War II. Despite the end of fascism as the ruling political ideology at the close of hostilities, George Soros found himself trapped under the rule of Communism in the Stalin era until he made a refugee journey to complete his education at the London School of Economics. After building his own hedge fund up and amassing a personal fortune of more than $25 billion, George Soros has focused his philanthropic efforts on protecting the human and civil rights of people across the world.

Although he has spent a large part of his career working within the capitalist system and working to end the Communist threat he was forced to live under as a teen, George Soros believes the position of socialism as a rival to capitalism was a major part of keeping the world safe. Soros explains the fact capitalism has no real challenger as a dominant ideology in the U.S. or across the world is causing major problems and threatens the entire financial system operating in the majority of the democratic world; the open society George Soros longs to see in all nations describes any political ideology seen as the single dominant or truthful option has already begun to fail. George Soros hopes to continue the battle to bring a fair and open society to the people of the world in a world where capitalism has spread to become the dominant option across the planet.
