Report from San Diego
We had the wonderful opportunity to present the Heldring Award to Boston Fed president Eric Rosengren at the GIC meeting in San Diego, held on Friday, January 12, at the Rady School of Management. This is GIC’s second year in San Diego but the first time in partnership with Rady, which provided a first-rate venue.
The conference theme was “Money, Models and Digital Innovation” and included cryptocurrency issues and discussion of the outlook for the economy and interest rates and volatilities. Speakers included President Rosengren, Dave Altig of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Don Rissmiller of Strategas, and Nobel Prize winner Harry Markowitz, professor of finance at Rady. Imagine the thrill; we had lunch Harry M. He is super sharp, quick wit and does it at age 90.
We are sharing links below so that you can join, after the fact, the 75 or so of us who packed the Rady business school to enjoy the excellent presentations. Links include the presentations themselves, press coverage, the Rady business school blog post about the event, attendees’ comments, and a photo of the award presentation.
