This just in, via e-mail: Public Choice 2006 will be held as scheduled, in New Orleans.
Dear Public Choice Society Colleague,
The next Public Choice Society Meeting will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel in New Orleans, March 30 â€“ April 2, 2006, the same venue as last year’s meeting (registration beginning on Thursday and concluding with the last plenary session Sunday morning). There are several reasons for affirming this earlier choice, including
â€“our contractual obligation to the Intercontinental;
â€“other Intercontinental hotels we could have switched to would have been considerably more expensive
â€“the New Orleans Intercontinental expects to be fully operating soon; and
â€“New Orleans deserves our support after the disaster it suffered.
If not back to normal, we expect New Orleans to be an attractive location six months from nowâ€”and hope as many of you as possible will participate in the 2006 Meeting.
