Research Report 41: Rural Debt Taskforce

Drought conditions in several Queensland regions increased the financial issues faced by some of the state's farm businesses. As a result, some stakeholders sought additional assistance for affected farmers from the Queensland Government, particularly focused on debt.

One of several responses by the Queensland Government was to establish a Rural Debt and Drought Taskforce, of which Ben Rees, farmer and economist, is a member.

In this Research Report Ben Rees examines elements of the financial system which have exacerbated the financial problems faced by farmers, particularly since the Global Financial Crisis.
