AgScience-on-tap: Just another asset class? Farmland as a financial investment

Prof. Dr. Madeleine Fairbairn, UC Santa Cruz, talks online about "Just another asset class? Farmland as a financial investment".

Since 2008, investors have evinced a growing interest in acquiring farmland. This trend demands critical scrutiny, particularly given the centrality of land to food systems, farmer livelihoods, and cultural identities. This talk draws from historical and qualitative research to examine the emergence and maturation of a global farmland investment industry over the course of the past decade. It examines how farmland is being transformed into a new financial asset class as the unique material and social properties of farmland that continue to present challenges to this asset-making effort.
