Harvard Law School conference on Free Market Ideology
Not sports law related, but possibly of interest to some of our readers:
This Saturday, the Project on Law and Mind Sciences of Harvard Law School will be hosting its third annual conference. The topic is "The Free Market Mindset: History, Psychology, and Consequences." Given all that is going on in today's economy and the government's efforts to prevent a more severe recession or even a depression, the free market mindset couldn't be a more timely topic.
This event will be open to the public.
Speakers will include Jon Hanson (Harvard Law prof), Douglas Kysar (Yale Law prof), Christine Desan (Harvard Law prof), Bernard Harcourt (UChicago Law prof), along with a number of prominent economists and other academics, including Stephen Marglin (Harvard Businsess School prof) and Juliet Schor (Boston College sociology prof)
I will also be speaking at this event. I'll be speaking on the last panel (5:30 p.m.), after I speak at MIT Sloan's Sports Analytics Conference. It will be a busy day.
Update: Judge Richard Posner will also be speaking at the event.
