I’m currently at Netroots Nation 2011 in Minneapolis. If you are there and want to say hi, shoot me an email or swing by one of my two panels: Thursday, 10:30am, Fed Up: Decoding Monetary Policy Matters with Matt Yglesias, Tim Fernholz and Kat Aaron. This will hopefully synthesize a lot of writing progressive bloggers have done on the Federal Reserve over the past year about why and how progressives need to be involved with the Federal Reserve.
I’m also on The Empire Strikes Back: The Fate of Wall Street Reform on Friday at 3:00pm, with Mary Bottari, Peggy Mears of ACCE and Representative Brad Miller, all people who have been at the front of the battle for financial regulation, the implementation of Dodd-Frank and the foreclosure crisis. These panels are, as I understand, streamable online from the website.
I’ll probably tweet stuff about the panels I attend if you are interested in following.
Anyone have Minneapolis recommendations?
