  3. Don't forget about Climate Change in your long-term analysis (10/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The US and Global Economy is set for major increases in the coming years, but make no mistake about it, this is the last decade of unmitigiate US economic growth. We have already begun to see major effects as we have been getting record heat waves, Western Region Forest Fires, Polar Vortex collapses, the list goes on and on. As more of the Earth's environment is disrupted more effects occur leading to problems for our economic output. Two major examples are the recent ERCOT issue and Covid-19. You should know the story or ERCOT by now, but know that that ice storm was caused by climate change. Storms like that will only increase. Second is Covid-19, which was caused by an unhealthy mixing of humans and animals in frontier country in China. This too will only increase as developing nations become more intertwined with the global economy, think African countries who still engage in Bush Meat Markets which are wholly unsanitary, and threaten to spread disease just like Wuhan Wet Markets do. As the climate is further disrupted, and human population grows, animal movement will lead to unintended species mixing that could lead to animal-human viral spread. These are just two examples but the list goes on and on, like temperature increases impact on agricultural output. And merely a cursory glance at NASA's website can let you know that human populations will begin to migrate toward temperate zones and richer nations in an attempt to flee the devestation that will be present in equitorial zones. All in all, enjoy it while it lasts, and prepare for a rocky, turbulent, wholly unpleasent century.   submitted by   /u/Ch_IV_TheGoodYears [link]   [comments]

  47. Covid plays (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Secondary covid plays! Besides the obvious vaccine development. What is everyone’s thoughts on other plays? Air purifier company’s, at home tests, Xpress Spa which now is conducting airport rapid tests. Online edification and other things that will be influence for at least the next 2 years with the covid news. I feel that another long play will be the climate control aspect. If you look at the speculation of obviously covid and lung breathing and how everyone started teleworking and pollution, emissions and other particles were at all time lows. I see this being a great influence. Plus the fact that Biden is heavy on climate change. The Paris agreement and top scientists saying we have 9 years to change our climate.. any stock in these categories should do well.   submitted by   /u/Goat_Either [link]   [comments]
