The Earth has a water scarcity problem, and it appears to be getting worse. The amount of fresh water on the planet has remained fairly constant over time, but the world’s population and the demands for usable fresh water have increased dramatically. A number of companies are developing technologies and infrastructure to help meet global demand, and a variety of water-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) give investors the opportunity to invest in and support those efforts.

Recently, a reader wrote to ask about recent news out of India and China that could have huge ramifications for automakers and the energy industry.

Q – “I heard about the electric car targets for India and China for the coming decades, and part of the announcement indicated that Chinese companies will be legislated to be the suppliers/manufacturers,” he wrote.

“Considering that the world’s future growth is highly, if not solely, dependent on China and India, the impacts to all internal combustion engine (ICE)-dependent industries could be tremendous.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index, Canada’s broad equity benchmark, lost -0.5% on the week, tracking losses on the U.S. blue-chip S&P 500 Composite gauge (down -0.7%) and the technology-weighted Nasdaq Composite Index, which retreated -0.6%, its fourth consecutive weekly loss. With typically lower summertime volumes prevailing, and a lack of any significant economic news or data, markets took their cues from geopolitical events, including the terrorist attacks in Spain last week and the resignation of U.S. President Trump’s strategist Stephen Bannon on Friday. North Korean tensions, meanwhile, have faded as President Kim Jong Un backed down on threats to launch missiles at the U.S. territory of Guam. While the price of crude oil jumped on Friday as the U.S. dollar weakened, oil still registered a -0.4% loss on the week, while gold, whose price tends to climb as a safe-haven asset in times of crisis, edged up through mid-week, but retreated during Friday’s session, closing the week with a -0.3% loss overall.
