  • What are the new mega trends impacting producers’ profitability and lifestyles?
  • What will be the role of emerging nations?
  • What will be the economic game changers?
  • How can producers position themselves to capitalize on these trends?
  • Do high farmland values represent a credit or asset bubble?
  • Where is the economy heading?
