Farmland as an Inflation Hedge
As inflation declined in the late 1980s from the double-digit rates of previous years, investor concerns of rising price levels diminished. However, viewed from the longer historical perspective of post-WWI performance, inflation has been at significant levels since the late 1960s. A major concern of investors is that their wealth portfolio provide positive real rates of return. During periods of inflation, some investiments increase in value more quickly than others, while some decrease in value.
