I mentioned a few weeks ago we were hosting a conference in NYC on June 3 2009. The conference is coming together nicely, with some terrific name guests committed:
• Former CNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan is the master of ceremonies;
• Doug Kass will be discussing the Future of Hedge funds, regulation, and performance
• Banking and credit experts Chris Whalen and Josh Rosner will be looking at the Banking System After TARP & PPIP
• We will have a panel on the Financial Media and the Crisis: How’d they do? and so far we have confirmed Randall Forsyth (Barrons), Jesse Eisinger (Portfolio, WSJ), Dan Gross (Newsweek, Slate, NYT), Dylan Ratigan, (CNBC, Bloomberg TV, tba)
One of the cool things about having a blog sponsor a conference is the interactive nature of the format. For the panels and Q&A, blog readers can submit queries. And some of the video will be posted here, too. I am very jazzed about it.
