Abstract

In the twenty years that preceded 1920 there was a 245 percent increase in the average per-acre price of farmland (including improvements) before land values fell sharply. Today’s escalation in land values-364 percent between 1957 and 1977-prompts some pointed questions: Have land prices reached their peak? If not, when will they plateau, if ever? Will they then decline and, if so, will the descent be sudden or gradual? Answers are not obvious, but some parts of the puzzle are identifiable.
