    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on February 24th, 2011 (All posts by )

    The speaker whom I am most interested in hearing is Luigi Zingales. I mentioned his essay Capitalism After the Crisis in this post. Zingales was one of the economists who urged Congress to hold hold hearings on the Paulson bailout plan, and as we know that did not happen. I just read his essay Learning to live with not-so-efficient markets, which I commend to your attention. A compendium of his recent writing, entitled “MY LOSING BATTLE AGAINST THE LEVIATHAN (Public interventions of a desperate free-market economist” can be found here.

      Very interesting topic.

      There are so many good talks to go to around Chicago. An embarrassment of intellectual riches.

      I would like to see Bing West talk about his new book on Afghanistan (at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs March 9).
