Houses, farm land are super investments

Real estate, particularly houses and farm land, have proved to be a “superior investment” for combatting inflation, according to a Purdue University study.

It also found that from 1960 to 1974, middle-income investors fared far better than those in upper income brackets. Purdue economists said “The middle income consumers, $5,000 to $25,000, have apparently had a superior mix of assets and debts for hedging against inflation. The concentration of assets and debts in the hands of high-income consumer-investors, $25,000 or more, has probably not benefitted this group relative to others during the recent “inflationary periods.”
