Woodstock for Economists August 2016

The world’s economists, major money managers, global bankers, “monied” individuals and other significant personages, will descend upon Jackson Hole, Wyoming, U.S.A., in a week or two. In an homage to the Federal Reserve Bank, I’m including my postings over the last year regarding monetary problems, issues, events, and “goings-on.”

And, if you think the discussions will be boring, well, some of the economic news reads like a soap opera from the ’60s or ’70s, heck pick your own decade!

Great Recession Archive
Some of my earlier postings reference the Great Recession of 2008-2009. Even though the “recession” has been deemed “over” by some but not everyone, the repercussions of the mammoth recession are still with us and being felt by countries, as well as major banks. Anyway, for those who are interested the following is an archive of Great Recession events:

Update: Putting a Face to the LIBOR scandal

Since we all can’t be there to enjoy and hobnob with the best (and I do mean it sincerely) and brightest economists and money managers at least we can ruminate (in absentia) over some of the topics that they will discuss, dissect, and disseminate between each other and among themselves.

Bon appétit!
