Update 11/24/2009: The Heritage Foundation has posted proceedings (including video and PPTs)
from the recent event I spoke at. It was a really nice event with a diverse crowd. Nice to see Brookings and Heritage coming together to focus on developing better data. I most enjoyed the mornings speakers who really offered a wide range of comments on the state of current economic statistics and needed improvements.
Original Post 11/6/2009: The Brookings Institution and the Heritage Foundation are hosting an event on "Measuring Innovation and Change During Turbulent Economic Times"
on November 17, 2009, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The topics on the agenda go much beyond just innovation measurement into many different aspects of change so it will be interesting to see how it all comes together at the event. Oh, and I will be serving as a discussant for one of the sessions so if you want to say hi, you will catch me at Heritage for this event.
