Fargo's Global Business Connections Conference got a special keynote speaker this year. No, he wasn't giving away his money, but Ben Stein was addressing more than 100 international business leaders here in Fargo.

Stein talked about how North Dakota is a step above the rest of the nation. And of course, the best-selling author, actor and economist threw in some of his dry humor too.

Ben Stein – Actor, Author, Economist, Laywer: “By virtue of working very, very hard and saving very, very hard and living a prudent, conservative, Norwegian, German lifestyle, you've managed to get through all of the pitfalls that the rest of us grasshoppers fell into.”

JM Grain and The Northern Crops Institute were honored with the exporter and service to exporters of the year awards respectively.
