Panel with Blogging Luminaries

By James Kwak

For those of you lucky enough to live in Western Massachusetts, the Political Economy Research Institute is hosting a panel tomorrow (Friday) from noon to 1:30 with not one, not two, but three prominent econobloggers: Doug Henwood of Left Business Observer, Mike Konczal of Rortybomb, and Yves Smith of naked capitalism. And your humble blogger will be moderating. It’s at the University of Massachusetts, on the third floor of Gordon Hall.

  1. Any chance of a live stream or video?

  2. Sure would be wonderful to get a transcript of this panel. What a lineup!

    I know I don’t have to ask, but video or transcript would be wonderful. Pleeeeeeze!!!!!!!!

  4. I had Doug Henwood listed as a link on my blog for a shortwhile. Tell the truth, from my perception he is “just ok”. I’ve read him, he strikes me as generally a mediocre blogger. But it did greatly impress me he had posted something annoying enough (or truth-bearing enough) for Citigroup bank to go after him and have WordPress to block and rip down his post.

    James Kwak if you are out there, I would love you to pick Henwood’s brain on that incident if there is time, and pass on to us what Mr. Henwood is comfortable with you passing on. But you should at least ask him for some “off the record” comments on that (if you have time for a beer with him afterwords)

  5. If there’s video, then Yves will probably have it up at Naked Capitalism. I don’t know if it’ll appear here.
