16 The LandReport | S U M M E R 2 0 1 8 LANDREPORT.COM Q uite a telling graphic, is this not? As I told Christopher Ingraham, who interviewed me for The Washington Post article associated with the maps above, Americans are increasingly looking to land as a safe haven for their portfolios as well as peace of mind. Christopher is one of several contributors to The Washington Post's must-read Wonkblog, which focuses on domestic policy, economics, and politics. Combine those three elements with America's commitment to private land ownership, and you have an ideal nexus for analyzing the in- creasing appeal of land as an asset class in the wake of the Great Recession. Christopher's article, which opens our FrontGate section on page 23, makes a superb complement to our Best Brokerages roundup. This year's contingent of 100-plus firms features industry leaders, proven performers, and a rock-solid group of newcomers who are proving their mettle. Enjoy! In the wake of the Great Recession, Americans turn to land as an essential asset.
