I’m heading off to Kansas City for a couple of days for a Kauffman Foundation conference for economic policy bloggers. As usual, posting will continue. I went to a version of this event two years ago, and I have to say that at the time I didn’t really get what Kauffman was all about—it’s a foundation for “entrepreneurship” which just kind of sounded like BS to me.
Economics: The ivory fortress: ONE of the more interesting responses to this week's Reinhart-Rogoff debate was this, from the economics blog Cheap Talk. "I Move That The AEA Stop Publishing Papers and Proceedings", the post title reads. Then:

Digitopoly | Future of Blogging: Last week I attended the annual Kauffman Foundation Economics and Financial Weblogging Forum in Kansas City.

They are also taller than I expected.

Kansas City Southern [KCS] has long been thought to be attractive to either Canadian National Railway or its smaller rival Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd., either as a potential acquisition or through deeper partnership.
