Retire in Ecuador & Help the World


Here is a way to retire in Ecuador and help the world… and your health and wealth.

This message looks at how to invest in green international investments.

More on that in a moment.

First, here is an Ecuador retirement income and lifestyle idea that can help the world.

Retire in Ecuador and run a small organic farm.

This perfect retirement in Ecuador farm begins it cycle with these guinea pigs.

The farm has many of them in these cages.

Clover on the farm feeds them.  Their manure helps organically fertilize the corn.

The corn husks are mixed with manure to be used as fertilizer and the corn feeds the…

pigs.

All of these more manure to grow the main crop!

Actually even if you are not ready to retire or live in Ecuador… this idea make sense because big problems create big opportunity.  The idea is growing.

Here is an excerpt from this week’s USA TODAY article entitled “On tiny plots, a new generation of farmers emerges”

Joseph Gabiou walks the fields of Wobbly Cart Farm with a practiced eye. He kicks dirt into place to keep the wind from blowing the protective covering off a row of organic broccoli. The seedlings are vulnerable to the flea beetles that came in the spring, just as longtime farmers in this valley told him they would.

To a new farmer, that’s crucial information. The farm, started five years ago, is young. But so is the 33-year-old Gabiou at a time when the average age of the American farmer is 57, according to the Department of Agriculture. The 2007 agriculture census found that more than one-quarter of all farmers are 65 or older.

Wobbly Cart is also tiny, just 6 acres. Nationwide, the average farm is 449 acres.

But Gabiou and business partner Asha McElfresh, 32, differ from typical farmers in another way. Wobbly Cart, say agriculture specialists, is part of a movement in which young people — most of whom come from cities and suburbs — are taking up what may be the world’s oldest profession: organic farming

“I’m seeing an enthusiastic group of young people all across the country who want to get into farming,”

For those who do not want to retire in Ecuador or retire at all…  investing in green still makes sense.

Water equity investments especially could get warm soon.

Here is an excerpt recently sent to our multi currency lesson subscribers:

A recent message on Green and Ecuador cars message looked at how investors can cash in by investing in green shares that are vital to society in the long term… but are depressed more than the norm due to short term economic concerns.

This economic distortion may be especially true of water shares.

I am looking for water shares that have extra value now and I began by looking again at our Green Portfolio.

There are six shares in this portfolio and in 2007 the portfolio rose 266%. In 2008 it fell 208%.  This phenomenal rise and fall were leveraged by a two times loan in yen.

I am not ready to leverage anything yet but some of these great shares may make sense as a medium or long term investment.

Name                                           Sector                Currency
Vestas  Wind Turbines            Alternate Energy      Danish Kroner
Q Cells   AG                          Alternate Energy       Euro
Seche                                  Environmental           Euro
Novozymes                          Environmental           Danish Kroner
Hyflux Ltd                            Water                       Singapore Dollar
Kurita Industries                  Water                       Japanese yen

Two of the six shares in this portfolio are involved with water purification and China and Kurota provides diversification into the Japanese yen which has been strengthening.

Kurita offers an investment in one of the world’s greatest economic concerns.

Water is at the forefront in economic development in the US, especially in the West.

Emerging nations have a water crisis as well.  Hundreds of Chinese cities are facing water shortages; farmers in the most-populous nation are foregoing millions of tons of grain production every year. Per-capita availability of water is expected to shrink to alarming levels by 2030.

India has a similar concern. According to the World Bank, by 2050 demand for water in India will exceed all available supplies.Therefore the green portfolio did exceedingly well before the crunch.

Now many in the market are worried that environmental shares will suffer, because the economy cannot afford to invest in the environment.

Water concerns cannot wait long especially with two of the world’s fastest growing economies facing serious water concerns, there is plenty of fundamental room for growth.

I also noted that both of my financial advisers had something good to say about Kurita without asking.
