Conferences: where's the money talk?

I just returned from a conference. This is an annual conference of a well-respected association.What keeps we amazed that out of multitudes of workshops, abstract sessions and posters there's not one dedicated to business/ money aspect!
Yes, we'd rather talk about utility of ultrasound vs. CT, time to cath and patient satisfaction, but not how to deal with money, break our dependence from paychecks or those often delayed checks from insurers ( or at least diminish it) and maybe then lead more fulfilling life because we don't have to do it for money.
Money continue to be that elephant in the room full of doctors that no one notices.
