Savage Neoliberalism Chronicles

Folks, for the next nine days I’m going to be away from the blog – tomorrow I fly off to the one shindig PSF’s love to hate the most: the WTO Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong. I’ll be covering it for VenEconomía, and doing some networking for my dissertation research.

I’m actually really looking forward to it. Oh to be at the epicenter of the world economy! A WTO Ministerial is a trade policy researcher’s shangri-la. 148 ministers along with their delegations and thousands upon thousands of lobbyists, journalists and NGOs…everyone who is anyone in trade politics all in one place at one time. Lemme tell you it was a MESS trying to get a hotel room!

But never fear: Pepe Mora and Katy have agreed to ghost blog while I’m away. Now, you two…don’t blog anything I wouldn’t blog…
