I’m up communing with the spirit of John Maynard Keynes at the Mt. Washington Resort where he and others established the framework for the International Monetary Fund.
In coming days here, there will be a magnificent conference organized by the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Headliners include the Financial Times‘ Martin Wolf, financier and latter day complex systems philosopher George Soros, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Santa Fe Institute co-founder Brian Arthur, Harvard’s Niall Ferguson, and others.
For those of you who occasionally wonder if I am ripping off Andrew Sullivan with this modest feature of “The View from Your Window” or anyone’s window for that matter, the answer is yes — but with permission. I have the greatest respect for Andrew’s work — and really loved his outreach to readers calling in photos. So, I link back to his great book on the subject — and offer the same here occasionally.
More on the INET Conference and what we are up to soon.
