7 Billion Reasons To Buy These 3 Stocks

 November 03, 2011 02:20 PM

Congratulations are in order to my very good friends, Don and Betty Overwood of Pine Hill, N.J. USA, who welcomed the birth of their new baby girl.  They named her Brooke.  She was born this past Monday, October 31.

While their new arrival was celebrated by friends and family, the attention surrounding the happy occasion pales in comparison to the announcement of the birth of Danica May Camacho of Manila, Philippines.  She too was born on that same day -- Monday, October 31 -- but her birth made global headlines in the main stream media.

This past Monday marked a monumental day, as the United Nations Population Division's Demographers proclaimed the 7 billionth human was added to the live population on Earth, and Danica was the poster child for this epic milestone.

Obviously, based on the numerous perpetual births and deaths that occur simultaneously throughout the world every second of the day, it's virtually impossible to pinpoint whom actually is that new born to cross the monumental 7 billion person barrier.

But the point here is that the world's population is and continues to grow at an alarming rate.  And based on future projections, it's only going to accelerate in the years to come.

While the population expands, the Earth and its precious resources are not.

In fact, the strain on natural resources and commodities that nurture human life will continue to be the greatest concern to sustain the ever growing population.  And the biggest challenge is how to keep pace with feeding a hungry population.

7 billion mouths are a lot to feed, and based on current birth/death projections, the world's population is on pace to grow by another one billion by 2024, a mere 12 years from now.

World's Population Growth and future projections ...

While planning for the future seems quite alarming, think about the effects on the current food situation today.

The global economic outlook has been pointing to a slowdown: Many analysts have predicted that we're heading for another recession...  The Federal Reserve lowered growth estimates yesterday in their FOMC policy statement...  The European Union has been showing contraction in the latest batch of manufacturing data... And, even China's economy seems to be cooling down.
