Trading on Water Scarcity - Scary?

Dec 10, 2020 5:40:24 PM

Happy Thursday!

Last week, you told us what you care about.

That Zoom post-briefing survey is extremely valuable to us. Here are some of your concerns from last week:

Q-What's your biggest concern about the current economy?

  1. I believe we are entering into a time of dollar devaluation. This may also result in high to hyper inflation. Several disruptive technologies may affect job growth and result in recoveries with out new job adds. IIOT, IOT, skynet, robotics, MI, and AI* will become normal. I also see the growth of blockchain and cashless monetary societies gaining steam (China is already essentially cashless, Euro is heading that way). Globally I'm not sure yet how the new trade alliance between China and Asia countries will affect US economy.
  2. Insuring the ability for USA organizations to: design, plan, build, test, manufacture, and deliver products to approved worldwide countries.
  3. I don’t have any concern… I see opportunity on this market
  4. Lack of local resources to fund infrastructure
  5. The incoming administration
  6. Inflation - higher rates

Great list of questions, and Tom will join me tonight to cover them with me!

"California Water Futures Begin Trading Amid Fear of Scarcity"

Scary headline! Dozens of you emailed me this week's news covering the start of water futures trading.

I've been covering this for some time, but now it's a reality: you can now place bets on our most precious commodity.

As Newsmax explained it,

The contracts, a first of their kind in the U.S., were announced in September as heat and wildfires ravaged the U.S. West Coast and as California was emerging from an eight-year drought. They are meant to serve both as a hedge for big water consumers, such as almond farmers and electric utilities, against water prices fluctuations as well a scarcity gauge for investors worldwide.

“Climate change, droughts, population growth, and pollution are likely to make water scarcity issues and pricing a hot topic for years to come,” said RBC Capital Markets managing director and analyst Deane Dray. “We are definitely going to watch how this new water futures contract develops.”

Here's the index:

Tune in tonight for an explanation of what this means both now and in the future.

And... I have an update about that Fund we're building!
