This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Foreign investment in African land is growing. Countries like China, Saudi Arabia and South Korea are leasing or buying millions of hectares to grow food for their people. Research shows that many large land deals lack protections for small farmers. Contracts may guarantee leases for up to ninety-nine years, leaving local people without land for generations. Better practices balance exports with local food needs and give farmers ways to enforce promises by investors. They also make clear what kinds of jobs and how many jobs will be created. Smallholders can gain influence if they form cooperatives or unions or have the support of nongovernmental organizations. There are different business models for cooperation between investors and local farmers. Lorenzo Cotula is a senior researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development in London. One popular method, says Mr. Cotula, is contract farming: "Contract farming has been around for a very long time and which essentially involves a company providing credit, inputs like seeds and fertilizers and training and all that, and then buying produce from the farmers at a fixed price when harvest time comes."Companies usually deduct the cost of the inputs from the final purchase price. He says contract farming represents up to sixty percent of tea and sugar farming in Kenya and one hundred percent of cotton farming in Mozambique. Contract farming may give farmers more access to markets for high-value crops. But Mr. Cotula found that contracts often go to wealthier farmers. Poorer farmers often work as labor on the contracted farms. The price that companies pay to farmers may be low, and companies might not honor purchase agreements when market conditions change. Also, growers may go into debt when the company deducts payments for inputs from the final purchase price. Another business model is a joint venture. Lorenzo Cotula says an equity stake, or share of ownership, in a business can give communities a voice in decision-making. It can also provide income in the form of dividend payments. But a practice called "transfer pricing" can make those dividends disappear. Prices are inflated or deflated in deals with companies linked to the partner in the joint-venture. This practice reduces profits for the joint-venture company and dividends for smallholder partners. As a solution, contracts may require fair market prices for sales to partners.

I guess I'm looking for some type of private placement memorandum structure, except that I don't want to issue stock. I was thinking of offering very attractive returns on a loan plus a provision for a revenue sharing note. Or possibly even revenue sharing preferred shares as mentioned in an article on this site. I'm not an attorney and I really can't afford to hire one for this purpose. So I was hoping there might be some resources available to help me to structure something which is both fair to the investor and my company and which properly documents the terms and conditions. Really enjoy reading the posts and articles here and appreciate any assistance which can be provided. Best, Jay"

To join the Elite Investor Club, head over to - https://www.eliteinvestorclub.com/ After moving to England in nineteen forty seven, George began his career selling souvenirs in a beach hut. But, realising it wasn’t for him, he wrote to every merchant bank in London telling them that flogging tourist tat was not really his bag. This go-getting attitude landed him his first role at Singer & Friedlander and he quickly rose through the ranks of merchant banks and trading floors across the world. By nineteen sixty three he had become vice-president of a large New York investment bank. But that wasn’t enough. George had itchy feet and it was only a matter of time before he left the shackles of employment to make a name for himself in his own right. And so Soros Fund Management was born in nineteen seventy. The fund takes positions in forex, commodities, private equity and venture capital. It’s also the primary advisor for the stellar Quantum Fund, a partnership between Soros and the legendary investor Jim Rogers that was set up in nineteen seventy three. His fund has achieved staggering growth having generated forty billion dollars in profit since it began. A jaw-dropping five point five billion dollars came in two thousand and thirteen alone and he has returned his investors an average of twenty percent growth per annum for over forty years. I’d be amazed if you can find a modern day fund manager who can return those levels of growth over four years, let alone forty. So what can we learn from this great investor? Well George doesn’t do penny share tips. You’re not likely to get much out of him if you ask who is going to dominate the high street in five years’ time either. Instead he looks at macroeconomics. That’s the performance, structure, behaviour and decision-making of an economy as a whole rather than focusing in on specific markets. Soros is a master at this and places enormous bets. His most famous trade was selling short ten billion dollars worth of UK sterling in 1992. Let’s put that into context. Ten billion dollars is more than the GDP of Namibia or the Bahamas today and was equivalent to the Gross Domestic Product of Bulgaria at the time. George bet ten billion dollars that the pound was overvalued and, despite attempts by the British Government to prop up the currency’s value, he was right. The move netted him over one billion dollars in profit. Unlike many investors that trade in currency, Soros is not a day trader. He makes his money in time windows lasting from 6 months to 3 years. Within that period, he bets that something is either massively overvalued or undervalued. He then takes a position. If he thinks an asset is undervalued he’ll take a long position, then wait for it to reach its fair value before selling. But the biggest, fastest money often comes from finding assets that are overvalued and selling them short. When you short a stock, you effectively borrow the shares and immediately sell them on at the higher value. You then wait for the price to go down before purchasing the shares back to return them to the original lender. The difference between what they were sold at versus what they were bought back at is your profit on the trade. Of course, if they’ve gone up since you sold them you lose money if you have to buy them back at the higher price. But how does Soros know what’s under or overpriced you’re probably asking? Soros believes in something called reflexivity. He believes markets are irrational, even when the maximum information needed to make sound investments is available. So, if something is shooting up in price faster than something against which it is measured, he will want to short sell it. A prime example of this is the UK housing market which has risen in price far beyond the rise in wages for years. It’s only a matter of time before we have a major market correction to revert to the historical average. The impending drop in house prices will impact on house builders, DIY retailers and even banks and you can bet Soros will have short positions on many of these when he believes the time is right. So what about if you want to emulate George Soros’s success, even in a small way? Well, you’ll be pleased to know he’s not shy about giving his opinion and you’ll find his views on investment opportunities across the financial media. George is another high profile investor who thinks the EU is on its last legs and that China is a debt-ridden basket case. He reckons there’ll be riots on the streets of America prior to a full-blown financial meltdown so choose which bits of advice you want to follow carefully! When Soros wins, he wins big. The trouble is, he doesn’t always win. So if you plan on using George’s advice as a template for your investment strategy, be very careful out there.
