Financial crisis meeting at Perimeter

Some snapshots from the conference The Economic Crisis and its Implications for The Science of Economics. I overcame my fear of H1N1 and decided to make the trip anyway. Let's hope all that hand washing pays off :-)

The first photo is the morning panel discussion. From left to right, Eric Weinstein, Nouriel Roubini, Richard Freeman and Nassim Taleb.

The second photo is of Emanuel Derman's talk. In the upper right hand corner you can see Doyne Farmer of Santa Fe.

The third photo is of Mike Brown, former Microsoft CFO and former NASDAQ Chairman telling some amusing stories which involve Bill Gates, Bernie Madoff and simulations of ant traders :-)

The talks today were for a general audience -- my favorite was Andy Lo's. I hope the next two days of the meeting will be a bit more technical.
