Businesses I would put money in

July 8, 2008

1. Food production technology, both large-scale and home based.

2. Biofuel production, one that doesn’t pinch our food supply.

3. Renewable energy generators for homes.

4. New energy saving devices.

5. New engines for personal transport.

6. New recycling technologies.

7. Technology for underground and undersea living.

(Note the conspicuous absence of IT there. šŸ™‚ )

If you’ve got kids under 10 years old today and you gave them stock in these businesses, I think they will do very well when they hit adulthood. Just a hunch.

    No…please, not no. 7. Leave the fishes and the earthworms alone. We’ve screwed up the animals and birds enough already.

    Fishes are screwed already. We’re already f*cking up the oceans in a major way – perhaps if we lived underwater we might appreciate it more than we do now.

    I said as long ago as 10 years ago that one of the most in-demand jobs in the future would be garbology (i.e. waste management). I really wish I’d insisted that I study that instead of accounting.

    Having grown up on a diet of Spongebob I wouldn’t mind undersea life actually. Might even be tempted to open up my own Krabby Patty joints, hehe.

    Garbage is great business. I notice the local recycling-for-charity action has become quite sophisticated lately, with well organized collection centers and banner advertising. I wonder how much of that actually goes to charity.

    HA! Don’t ask….

    One thing though. Garbage is mostly run by quasi-legal organizations. It wasn’t fictional that whole ‘garbage is run by the mafioso’ in the USA. True of other countries too. It’s an industry that’s very lucrative and yet still flies under the radar.

    The thing is, people feel better earning $200 an hour wearing leather shoes and tie than $400 an hour wearing slippers smelling like something the cat dragged in. Mind over money. Its what keeps the garbage cartel smiling all the way to the bank.
