Joined by a selection of business leaders, academics and the Liquid team, Jim Rogers reaffirmed his passion for agricultural investments and explained how it will be the producers and providers of capital who will reap the rewards of rising demand for food and food-related products.
The world is consuming more than it is producing. And what we eat is costing more – the United Nations (UN) reported food prices have doubled in the last decade. The UN predicts that the world population will be somewhere between 9.6 billion and 12.3 billion by the end of the century. By 2100, there will be an estimated 5.3 billion extra mouths to feed.
“Supply and demand for agriculture is out of whack,” Jim Rogers said.
“Brazil”, he noted, “has plenty of water, plenty of rich soil, it has got huge natural resources, so of course the country is going to continue to be a supplier of agricultural products and probably more in the future than now”.
Touring Liquid Investments’ Coconut and Neemplantations in Brazil, Mr. Rogers commended the owners for having the “foresight to see the great opportunity that agriculture presents."
