Bruce Sherrick (), Scott H. Irwin and D. Lynn Forster

No 278457, 1986 Annual Meeting, July 27-30, Reno, Nevada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Returns from various U.S. capital assets are used to construct efficient investment portfolios for four time periods in the post-WWII era. These efficient portfolios show a higher proportion of farm real estate than are actually observed. Conclusions are that returns to farm real estate may have been high relative to their risk.
