This week we have the big central banker conflab at good ole Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This geeky gathering to digest dusty economy papers never used to bother the markets much, but then central bankers realised they could steer the direction of monetary policy outside of the confines of a policy meeting press conference. Yeehaa cowboy!
Except this year it's not just about the central bankers. This week also marks the time when the Republican Speaker from Congress holds an annual gathering at, of all places, Jackson Hole. And who's the headline speaker this year?
