OK, so you missed the big 2 day UC Berkeley – UCLA Symposium, with speeches from FOMC Chair Ben Bernanke, Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Yale Professor Robert Shiller, UCLA Professor Edward Leamer, and others.

You’ll catch it next year! Meanwhile, if you are so inclined, you can read some of the papers [1] that were presented.
