First of all, not all investors have the same needs, same capital and same risk tolerance. Your first step is to discover these factors and then to adopt a investing style that fits.

Buy and hold works just fine with some stocks and some investment styles as does trading for other stocks and other styles. When you say "market saturation, resource shortages, labor pricing" you imply this is something new. Wasn't Thomas Robert Malthus (1766–1834) complaining about "resource shortages" back then? Economics "is" about limited resources.

The most dangerous word ever spoken are "This time is different" when applied to the wrong "this." Some things never change, other change constantly.

For a long term outlook I would propose that there are many more poor people than rich people and that many of these poor people are moving up into the middle class. Find the companies that serve these markets and you should do all right.
