I have to go to a conference in a few days, and the dress code is business formal... I don't own a skirt suit (which always looks ridiculous in me anyways), and don't have very much money. What are some cheap, easy business formal ideas? Would a white blouse and black pants do?

A blouse and white pants would be fine. If you had a black cardigan or sweater to put over top of it, even better.
Basically business formal is a suit. If you don't have a lot of money, see if you have a friend or family member who is the same size as you and see if you can borrow something from them.
If you do have a few bucks, you could try going to a thrift store and see if there is a black blazer you could purchase.
If you had a dress that would work as well if you paired it with a blazer too.1
