    Thanks for editing the post on the lines of misgivings expressed in my comment above. Now it reads a little better even as I wonder why the fact of having edited the post has not been acknowledged by the author.

    I am a little confused about what to make of the *New Normal* here.

    If the New Normal is construed as the shape of the global economies in a post meltdown world, then I guess those precious hours/resources are better spent figuring out ways to *wade thro* it and not in “challenging” it.

    Or am I missing something here, given that the event is scheduled at a premier B-school (that breeds the likely architects of the next bubble/crisis)? They must be seriously concerned where to apply their knowledge (read- `how to get by’) in a world that is suddenly purged of CDO, CLO, CDS and other exotic alphabet soup. Perhaps they more than anybody else know that the human memory is short and the world is in no hurry to get “back to basics” and if that is the New Normal they configure, then yes it indeed needs to be challenged, in perpetuation of their own interest of course!!!

  3. i am interested to attend this event can you please let me know the charges and procedure for the same.
