Some thoughts on the SEA conference

(SEA stands for the Southern Economics Association.) This was the most insane conference I have ever attended. To the point, the conference program was printed in a tiny 10-point font (see, for example, page 137 of the program pictured below) and ran to 200-plus pages, and the morning panels began at 7:45 in the morning, with over 30 concurrent panels to choose from in each session! My main complaint, however, is that the economists of SEA refuse to apply market principles to their own conference. They charge a flat fee to attend the massive three-day conference (like a socialist version of Disneyland) instead of offering a la carte pricing, where one pays for the number of panels one actually attends (like a capitalist state fair, where one must pay for each ride). Memo to the SEA: do better!
