2008 - Illinois Farm Economics Update

The recent turmoil in financial markets is very large by any reasonable standard of comparison. The farmdoc team prepared the following articles to illustrate the impact of the current financial crisis on the agricultural economy and decision-making. Focus is devoted to five main topics – the nature of the financial crisis, impacts on the short-term availability of credit, the connection between the financial meltdown and commodity prices, crop insurance decisions, and land rental and lease negotiations.
