It's Labor Day weekend in the US and it's worth taking a moment to consider the builders of the past who created the infrastructure we still rely on to be successful. Things are changing now and there's a lot of real work to be done over the coming months & years. A new generation of builders will be needed to meet the challenges.

Locally & globally, the pandemic hasn't ruined economies but it sure has shaken them up. Adding in the effects of a changing climate, we can see a lot of opportunities where profit and sustainability can be more closely aligned than ever before. Meanwhile, those who turn their backs on prevention & cure face personal consequences that become harsher by the day.

The rules of supply and demand haven't changed. Supply chains are still in the process of recovering and none look particularly threatened. It's demand that's been pushing up prices, but should we be racing each other to spend? Prices fall back and inflation neutralizes wins.

A little inflation goes hand-in-hand with a healthy economy but it's one of those things that's subject to a snowball effect, which is dangerous.

Happy New Year! The New Year has arrived and we're looking forward to the Happy part showing up soon. 2020 created some new billionaires but pushed more than 100 million into poverty. Many more are looking over the edge right now. The team here stayed healthy. No-one caught the virus and we benefited from the time. We made around 8% investing green and locally - supporting real jobs - it felt good. We missed most of the big IPOs but we didn't short Tesla either.
