He used to be adamantly capitalist/free-market oriented. However he seems to
have reached his dotage, and he has taken on a very socialist/mercantilist
stance (which is consistent with his current preference for gold) against free
markets, and while he has been funding many enterprise development projects in
the Soviet Union, he also funds quite a bit of leftist/liberal political causes
here in the US, including large amounts of money for gun control groups, as well
as support for pro-world government like the World Federalist Society, and other
anti-freedom causes.
