I suspect that it’s the only reason she keeps the job – other than the immense salary, of course…

A smarter lad would simply spend his own money and be in Vail. 14″ of fresh powder.

None of these conferences do anything. Do you really think greedy Plutocrats are going to share trade secrets on plunder techniques. Even more, that Economists have any clue as to existential reality.

But, I managed to seriously augment my baseball cap inventory back when IT conferences were in vogue. Also, super balls, especially ones with the kinetic lights inside.

A wish for the general betterment of mankind argues that this factor not be neglected, although to take advantage of this would require the development of a kind of psychology-based neutron bomb: a weapon that would turn to mush the minds of the self-absorbed, pompous, trite, bootlicking, self-congratulatory, arrogant, doctrinaire and greedy – that is, anyone with three or more points of resemblance to, say, Stephen Schwarzman or Mitch McConnell- while leaving the commonsensical, decent and open-minded in full possession of their faculties and in control of the global purse.
