Mobilize to Save the Economy

Investing in Potential Coronavirus Treatments

When the coronavirus epidemic started to spread we wrote
about investing in pharmaceuticals and the coronavirus. We noted
that a vaccine is a long way off and that a better short term investment

pandemic go away but they would alleviate suffering and reduce the number of
deaths from this modern day plague.

What Sorts of Treatments Are Possible?

Modern science has found […]

Long Term Investment in Agribusiness

With the spreading coronavirus dominating the investment news, it is easy to forget that some investments may do better this year than last. One of these is US farming. This is not because it will necessarily be such a great year for farming but because last year was so horrible.

The trade war hurt investments in US agriculture as China quit buying farm products from the USA. Then, the strong dollar made US Ag exports less competitive. […]
