How to Get Rich While Making the World a Better Place

The Most Despicable Way to Get Rich

Written by Jeff Siegel

The world is going to hell!

At least that’s what it seems like if you spend more than five minutes reading the daily news feeds on your smartphone.

Nuclear explosions in Russia...

The Arctic literally on fire...

Everything you do and say being monitored by tech giants and overzealous government thugs...

Trade wars siphoning wealth from the most vulnerable...

Crazy people with launch codes to nuclear missiles...

Some days it’s hard to focus on anything but doom and gloom. Especially in my line of work, where many of my decisions are dictated by the current state of the world.

It’s actually a weird and somewhat uncomfortable position to be in.

For instance, I’m not particularly happy when tensions heat up in the Middle East. But if I know oil prices will rise as a result, I’m sure as hell going to make a couple bucks off that move.

Or when global coffee prices plummet due to extreme weather conditions that wipe out entire crops. It’s a horrible thing that destroys the livelihoods of farmers, but the value of my coffee ETN skyrockets.

It just sucks.

It sucks to know that I’m building wealth at the expense of others.

So when I see an opportunity to make a lot of money by investing in something that actually does something good for society and for working folks, and not just fat-cat Wall Street types who’ve never done an honest day’s work in their lives, I’m all over it.

A Very Serious Question

Over the years, it’s given me much pleasure to build my wealth by investing in companies and industries that are making the world a better place.

Investing in cleaner energy sources, for instance, that don’t continue to foul up our water and air.

Or investing in sustainable farming operations run by real farmers who treat their soil with the same care and respect one might treat gold or silver — which, by the way, are nowhere near as important as healthy food.

And of course, investing in cannabis, which is helping dismantle the war on drugs while helping sick people get their medicine. I’m talking about cancer patients, kids with epilepsy, and, of course, veterans suffering from PTSD.

I can’t lie. It just feels really good to know that my investments result in significant wealth creation AND a safer, cleaner, and more just world.

So today, let me ask you...

What do you think helps make the world a better place?

New technologies like this one, which is helping bring free markets and prosperity to third-world nations?

Biotech companies like this one, which is developing new treatments that help to prevent age-related diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s?

Or maybe you’re like me and believe that lifting the prohibition on cannabis is the right and honorable thing to do, and you want to invest in the most promising pot stocks in the marketplace.

While we do invest to build our wealth, there’s nothing that says we can’t do so in a way that is aligned with our own values.

So I encourage you to think about this...

Which companies and industries do you believe are making the world a better place? And which ones do you believe will not only succeed in such endeavors but will also make you a lot of money?

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth...
