Global Mega-Boom On The Horizon

Recommended Posts

Crunching everything from fertility rates to schooling levels and the rule of law, HSBC predicts that the world's economic output will triple again by 2050, provided the major states can avoid conflict - trade wars, or worse - and defeat the Malthusian threat of food and water limits.

In other news, I can leap to the moon, as long as I can avoid gravity.

Yesterday it took me 15 minutes to run a mile.

Today it took me 10 minutes.

I predict that in a couple of days, I will be able to travel 1 mile instantaneously.

Am I right in thinking that HSBC have big interests in all the countries that they say are going to do well, and little or no interest in the countries that they see shrinking?

Just saying like, dont read anything into it.

I just read that story on yahoo and thought it was a wind up, so as long as there are no wars, food, fuel and water are miraculously pumped from nowhere and we close our eyes and pray really really hard...

A take on peak oil...

Peak Soil. Our food requires vast amounts of fertilisers (oil derived) and pumped water to thrive.

nah - fertilisers come from mineral salts or animal waste

areas where pumped irrigation is necessary also tend to be sunny and solar power represents a handy option; even then most major irrigation projects make use of gravity feeding anyhow AFAIK

plus, soil and crop engineering are moving in leaps and bounds (Brazil really benefitting from this) to mitigate the fertiliser and water needs of crops

Si1 bring back your old profile photo!

The global economy will continue to do well over the next 30 years despite all you gloom mongers. Although there will be a few commodity wars in there.
