Congratulations to our incoming President Elect and Board of Directors!
Thank you to all of the 2021 candidates for running!
Farmland, in contrast, is barely correlated with the stock market, according to an analysis by Todd H. Kuethe, an agricultural economist at Purdue University. So owning farm acreage could add diversification to a stock portfolio, as the land value could zig when the market zagged.
Following the meetings in Austin, it is great to see our Board, Committees and Sections engaged in organizing events for AAEA. We have an exciting program planned for the ASSA meetings, January 7-9, 2022 which are being held virtually. We have six sessions that cover a wide range of topics including the effects of land property rights on land use, the effects of COVID-19 on agricultural markets and trade, the relationship between food prices and affordability of healthy diets and the effects of climate change on agricultural production. Information about all of the sessions that AAEA is hosting at ASSA can be found here: https://www.aaea.org/meetings/aaea-at-assa-annual-meeting/aaea-at-2022-assa-annual-meeting
