Economy’s Big Boys meet at Teton Springs

A Swainson’s hawk circled slowly above a tent at Teton Springs Resort last Friday morning, scanning the adjacent manicured golf course for prey.
The buteo appeared blissfully uninterested in the conversations taking place below.
Workers buzzed about setting tables and carrying trays in preparation for a catered lunch, equally as uninterested.
But inside the assembled crowd was all ears, paying attention to the group of assorted financial bigwigs, economists and money managers huddled under the tent. The discussions that took place caught the ear of at least some people tuning in from around the world.
The event, the seventh annual Rocky Mountain Economic Summit, bills itself as “an exclusive economic and entrepreneurial conference,” and it proved it in several ways.–David Graham, Jackson Hole News & Guide
