Milken 'Em

UCLA Fac Blog has audio on:
Peter Taylor, chief financial officer of UC, at Milken Conference
and
Gov. Brown Says Pension Proposal Will Involve Constitutional Changes & A Vote of the People
the list of speakers and sponsors for the event are listed here
You might remember the Milkens from recent stories, like: Apparently We've Forgotten Who the Milkens Are

And there was this event with Jeb Bush, Rupert Murdoch and Mrs. Bill Gates over the past few days in San Francisco: Protest greets conservative education summit in SF.

For those who were in attendance etc. who believe that Murdoch is concerned about American education-- you might also want to view this investigative report from CNN: Exclusive: Videos Detail News America Tactics Against Competitors --nice way to treat American owned businesses...

and With Goldman's Foray Into Higher Education, A Predatory Pursuit of Students and Revenues -- you really think UCOP isn't looking at this same model without salivating? (These are some of their 'former' colleagues!)

As Ex Officio UC Regents, UC Regents and UC Exec leadership attend these events frequently we have decided to create this new label: BillionaireWatch_at_UC for these special, oh so special occasions.
