One of the speakers will be the economist/rock star Dr. Stephen Fuller, the director for the Center for Regional Analysis at GMU (he's the guy who predicted a slowdown in the DC area economy and owns a boat that used to belong to John Lennon. For a full list of who will speak at the event and the rest of the details the press release is after the jump). [CurbedInbox; previously]
