Sips during sessions

When Outsider eventually steps down from his journalism work, he’s always thought a profitable sideline would be hitting the conference circuit.

After all, thousands of dollars for a keynote speech doesn’t sound too shabby for less than an hour of work.

But, he’s now reconsidering that after seeing former US Secretary of the Treasury, Larry Summers, recently speaking in Sydney.

Mid-way through his presentation of US monetary policy, global central banks and the troubled UK economy, Summers stopped a take a drink from a black can. Was that booze, Outsider wondered, that Summers was swigging?

He was not the only one thinking that as the moderator paused to ask him the very same question.

Fear not, Summers stated, despite it being late at night in the US, he was merely drinking a can of Pepsi.

With Summers likely being repeatedly asked similar questions at similar conferences all around the world, Outsider can see how it might get a bit tedious and wonders what type of answers Summers would have given if he had been drinking.
