A Human Rights Analysis of the G20 Communique: Recent Awareness of ...
It took half a year or so, but at last poor countries and poor people are being factored into responses and solutions to the global financial and economic crisis. The human cost of the crisis is now being addressed by mainstream newspapers, it is the subject of high level reports, and is found in the G20 communiqué of April 2 . It seems the people worst hit by this crisis—people who are also least responsible for it, and who will suffer longest when the rich world returns to "normal"—now matter and are explicitly considered within the global public policy that the G20 communiqué reflects.

Food for all - World food summit - Agricultural machinery worldwide
Feeding a population expected to swell from 5.7 billion in 1995 to 9.8 billion by the year 2050 will require rapid increases in food production, mostly through increasing output from land already being cultivated. FAO projections indicate that the required gains can be achieved... but only with increased and better directed investment in agriculture and rural development. THE RAPID INCREASES that allowed food production to outstrip population growth over the past 50 years have resulted in significant part from high levels of investment in agriculture, both private and public. FAO estimates that gross investments in on-farm ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

funds to bulk up farmland investments
(Reuters) - Pension funds are deepening their commitment to farmland, upping investments by billions of dollars and moving to active strategies, as a hedge against potential inflation and to diversify from riskier investments. Market Analysis Leading the charge are U.S. and European pension funds, although it is estimated that the amount of institutional money invested is less than 1 percent of global farmland value, with concentration in food exporting regions. A growing world population, limited water resources and finite amounts of land available have made farmland attractive to investors beyond traditional owners -- private ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Can investing in stocks be fool proof? - Yahoo! Answers
So here's my hypothesis. I set my online stock broker account to automatically buy a stock at a certain price, and then always sell at a certain price and allow it to continuously make money. For instance, I'll pick US Oil which normally fluctuates between $30-40. If i set a trigger to always buy at $30 and always sell at $40, wouldn't I essentially always be making a constant return? Yes if the stock always performed in that manner. I wish it were that easy. Let us assume you buy at $30 and it goes to $20, what are you going to do then?
