Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suggest that the issue is that economics is politics, and polities are fragmented along cultural and linguistic lines. Hence, no Continental European economists at the event, but some Americans were there.

And so it is entirely possible that economics actually diverges along national boundaries.
