    Today there are 220,000 more humans on the planet than there were yesterday.  Each day a city’s worth of new humans all wanting food, warmth, cars, smartphones and internet.

    Meanwhile, the most important resource of them all, oil, is set to begin waning right around 2030, give or take.

    Once people catch onto the idea that infinite growth is not possible, and that oil is THE limiting resource for a global, just-in-time economic system, everything we think we know about money and politics changes.

    As I am fond of asking, what are stocks worth in a world without growth?

    How will government respond when faced with having to square off against each other for dwindling resources?

    This post has been elevated from the enrolled forums section. It is the introductory piece of a series on ‘How to construct an Investment Portfolio’ authored by user Travlin (enrolled members can access the entire series here).

    Investment planning should be kept as simple as possible while still meeting your needs. As a self-directed investor, it is important to me to evaluate the situation, define what I want to accomplish, and decide how to get there. I find that putting this in writing helps me organize and clarify my thoughts into a useful assessment. This does not have to follow a rigid format as long as it is coherent. From this I can begin to structure the portfolio I need, but that is a separate topic.

    1. Situation Analysis
    2. Investment Needs
    3. Investment Strategy

    This is offered as a model to show you one way it can be done. There are many others. Feel free to use this model as is, or revise it to suit your views and circumstances.
