Jackson Hole Symposium

This annual powwow for the world’s top economists and central bankers is so hush-hush that the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, its organizer, declined to share the who, when, where, or how. But our sources tell us that the meet-up will start, as always, with dinner on Thursday, followed by two days of wonkfest — discussions and paper presentations and, no doubt, exuberant debate about who got us into this economic mess and how to get us out.

get us out. Incidentally, the world’s longest-running shoot-out, hailed
by Jackson Hole as a show of “frontier justice,” will take place every
night of the meeting in the town square. Greenspan versus Bernanke,
anyone? — AB
