The Brandeis International Business School will host its first Municipal Finance Conference on August 3, 2012. It is a one day conference that will bring together academics and market professionals to discuss the latest public finance research. As Rich Ryffel wrote in the Bond Buyer,
In this forum, researchers can defend their research and get insight into how our markets really work. At the same time, practitioners can be assured that the available research is rigorous, thoughtful and valid.
I will be one of the session managers at the conference. Please join us if you are interested in helping bridge the gap between theory and practice in municipal finance.
