It’s late summer, so time to bask in the econo-geek fun of the annual Federal Reserve Bank of Kanas City Economic Symposium in Jackson Hole. (Martin Feldstein’s stuff was great last year.) Trouble is, while the FRB website says Ben Bernanke and others are speaking in Jackson Hole next week, there’s no sign of the event itself or its agenda on the Kansas City site.
The conspiracy theorist in me wants to read something into this. I know, I know … I shouldn’t.
