Totalitarian Societies and Dysfunctional Social Groups

Sašo Venovski is a businessman with extensive experience in commodities trading, financial markets, and real estate.  He was born in the late fifties in Yugoslavia, a country which no longer exists. His father was a resistance fighter against the German occupation during WW2 and  played a big role in Sašo developing a keen interest in history and world affairs. 

After graduating from the University of St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje with a degree in Sociology and Social Psychology, Sašo worked as a research fellow at the Institute of Sociological Research in Skopje, Macedonia. His main research interest focused on totalitarian societies and dysfunctional social groups. His findings eventually put him in conflict with the regime and forced him to leave the totalitarian country and seek refuge in London, England.

After successfully running several different businesses he became very involved in the financial markets and specialty derivatives traded on the US commodity exchanges. At the invitation of a brokerage house from Chicago, Sašo moved to the US with his family in 2000 to work as a commodities broker and European Trading Desk specialist for the next 12 years. He has since retired from the commodities business and now works as a residential and commercial real estate specialist here in Orlando. In his free time, he continues to study dysfunctional social groups and the history of totalitarianism.
