The world makes a bit more sense when you replace the word "investors" with "extractors".

this thought came to mind while watching a short video report on a fog-catching project in lima (bbc.com/news/av/magazine-38175).

during the video, a london-based academic basically says "poor people aren't an attractive target for investors because they have nothing to offer in return" (paraphrase).

to my mind, not being attractive to investors is a good thing! let grassroots initiatives grow organically without outsider extraction (ie. parasitism).
