I was left with a big skepticism about what these 'experts' were saying in this linked news clip. If the video summary represented the impression of those in attendence then the cause of classical liberalism treaded water - at best.

That is one of the main weaknesses of the economics profession. Those who cannot fathom how it is possible to scientifically merge economics and ethics will have to be satisfied with treading water.
