Farm Credit Services of America (FCSAmerica) and Frontier Farm Credit are co-sponsoring a webinar series, Two Economists and a Lender. Our September installment featured Agriculture Economic Insights (AEI) co-founders David Widmar and Brent Gloy and Craig Kinnison, chief financial officer. 

Two topics that have come up frequently in 2021 are inflation and interest rates. While on everyone’s mind, conversations about these are often mired with ambiguity and uncertainty. We reviewed the latest data and considered what might be ahead.
