The Changing of World Economies and Needs

As entrepreneurs, investors, and business owners, it is important to understand the shifting of the top industries for growth in today’s economy. There are of course, some obvious discrepancies. For example, print media will be classified as an industry that is dying, while tablets and smartphones are viewed as one that will be surging. Others can be less deceptive but more important – such as the waning of stocks in solar and the rise of farm commodities.


Consultant Teodoro Lavin Sodi as a student of all economic systems writes that the history of what has gone on and what is changing in these areas throughout history.


The math here is simple. Arable land in the world is decreasing and global demand, fuelled by emerging economies, is skyrocketing. There is a demand that is increasing for corn-based ethanol for fuel will also aggravate this problem. Farmers will be able to make the most of their farmland to profit on quickly rising prices of crops. “Global warming” that is causing changeable weather conditions only makes the situation worse.

Who will profit

Businesses that will be profit are fertilizer companies making the 3 main workings of fertilization – nitrogen, phosphorus as well as potassium. Nitrogen is necessary for the growth of leaf and greener leaves, phosphorus is needed for strong roots and the development of fruit and potassium (potash) is needed to increase strength, color, and size of the plant. Genetically seeds that are modified, that intensification the yield as well as pesticide resistance crops will intensify in demand. Chemical manufacturers specifying in both will profit the most from these long-term shift with supply as well as demand. This shouldn’t include livestock producers – these needs to be avoided due to the cost increase of grain-based feed.


The global battle for oil has been furious for over half a century, with the volume of accessible oil fields dropping each year. Smaller oil companies have even gone to the lengths of developing new technologies to drain out the very last lingering drops of oil from fields that are abandoned in order to make a profit.

Oil uptrend is intact

Despite the tip in prices because of the apparent slowdown of developed nations, the uptrend will still be intact. Markets that rely on cheaper and dirtier sources of energy will rise the request for fossil fuels, while discounting the more expensive, but less powerful green choices of wind and solar power. Oil companies like Chevron and Exxon Mobil will increasingly profit as world demand and refinery manufacturers such as Halliburton will remain to profit. An increasing number of cars that are made in China and India will also drive the global request for black gold.
