Farmland as an Inflation Hedge

US total debt to GDP - the aim will be to inflate this debt away
In looking at the rationale for farmland as an investment, we have just came across a pretty scary chart below on the total debt to GDP in the United States.  The discussion always centers around government debt, but debt in all areas of the economy is off the charts.

How could this debt possibly be serviced?  The answer is, it cannot be, at least in any rational sense of the word.  We believe that governments will do what they have always done, which is to lower debt by printing additional money - probably through Quantitative Easing (QE) or some similar method - which will lower the real (as opposed to nominal value) of this debt. We would argue therefore that looking at farmland as a hedge against inflation makes a lot of sense.  

As a "hard asset", and investment in farm land in land will will not only provide investors this inflation hedge, but also offer a steady stream of good dividend income and offering excellent upside potential for capital gains due to the ongoing agricultural "super cycle" as coined by noted farmland and commodities investor Jim Rogers.

  2. I am becoming more and more of a "hard asset" guy every day. I'm currently on a program of buying gold and silver bullion coins as often as possible, because it doesn't take a genius to see that unlimited money printing + a going-nowhere economy = currency destruction. I also strongly suggest looking into silver and gold mining penny stocks, because once the "mania" phase hits (after people wake up to the reality that hard assets are the only real way to protect their wealth), the whole sector will go ballistic with speculative money.
