Kauffman Economics Bloggers Forum

A good chunk of the economics blogging community is converging on Kansas City for the Kauffman Foundation’s third annual Economics Bloggers Forum. Folks on my flight included Tyler Cowen, Matt Yglesias, Dean Baker, Ryan Avent, Dan Mitchell, and Mark Perry.

In case you want to watch any of the proceedings live on Friday, here’s the announcement from Kauffman:

On Friday, April 1, the Kauffman Foundation will host the third annual Economics Bloggers Forum. The Forum brings together select economics, finance, and technology bloggers for an event in Kansas City to discuss key policy issues and cutting-edge research on topics related to entrepreneurship, innovation, and growth. It will feature a dozen talks by well-known bloggers, including Tyler Cower, Virginia Postrel, Felix Salmon, and Dean Baker. Although the event is not open to the public, the presentations will be live-streamed at www.kauffman.org/bloggers from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. central time. An agenda of speakers and times also is available on the site.

  1. Is there a chart available that shows how much economic impact this blogging event had on the local and national economy?

    I’d like to be able to download the data into an excel spreadsheet and compare it to the 1962 World Chess Tournament and the 1978 convention on subatomic particle research by 3rd world nations, I think the results would show clearly the need for more tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

    Only by face to face social interaction and exchange of ideas in a supportive atmosphere can we realize the truths and values that clearly indicate the immediate need to declare all unions illegal and reserve voting for persons who own 1,000 or more acres of fertile crop land. Also we should have more tax cuts for the rich and start drilling for oil in all our cornfields and other food crop areas.

    In short I hope the conference was a great success and that soon we will see more tax cuts for the wealthiest and perhaps some progress on removing universal suffrage from our society. Only good things can come from all this.

    Let’s get blogging!!!
