I used to judge an academic conference by the number of big-name scholars in attendance. Now I look for big-name bloggers. What a delight, then, to be at the Searle Center Conference on the Economics and Law of the Entrepreneur with two of my favorite bloggers, Gordon from Conglomerate and Lynne from Knowledge Problem. The conference, organized by Dan Spulber, brings together economists and legal scholars to grapple with the challenges facing entrepreneurship research. Today’s sessions focused on venture finance and law, and tomorrow’s deal with economic growth, innovation, and the social context of entrepreneurship. I’m moderating a session featuring Simon Parker, Mirjam van Praag, Doug Cumming, Robert Miller, and Linda Yueh. The papers are available at the conference site and a selection will appear in a special issue of JEMS.

This the second Searle Center event I’ve attended this year and I’ve been impressed with both. The Center is only a year old but, under Henry Butler’s guidance, has already established itself as a major player in the fields of regulatory and entrepreneurial studies.
