Here’s some news: TBP will be hosting a conference in NY in June, discussing a variety very fascinating topics with a terrific line up of speakers. The conference’s working title is Capitalism After Crisis & Crash.
There are some big name guests already lined up — including Dylan Ratigan, Nassim Taleb, Doug Kass, Chris Whalen, and others.
The discussions will focus on the state of the banking and credit system, the cause of the financial crisis, the role of the media, the future of hedge funds, and opportunities for building a new, stronger financial system.
Prices have not yet been set, but the space is limited to 300 attendees.
There will be several keynote speeches, and at least 3 panels
• Financial Media and the Crisis: How’d they do?
• Hedge Funds: Performance & Regulation in the Post Crisis Era
• The Banking System After TARP & PPIP
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.
