Zhang: Impacts of interest rate changes on land value

April 14, 2022

Wendong Zhang, associate professor, was interviewed for an article in Farmer Mac's The Feed about how potential interest rate increases from the Federal Reserve could influence agricultural land markets in the coming years. This is based on the new Ag Policy Review article co-written with Ph.D. student Albulena Basha https://www.card.iastate.edu/ag_policy_review/article/?a=138

"Currently, interest rates are still very low, and even with the high inflation we’re experiencing now, all the signals from the Federal Reserve seem to show that they are taking a slower and modest hike pace. Fluctuation in farm incomes probably will play a bigger role."
