Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Oct. 20: China — An economic giant emerges

A talk by Susan Erickson of IUPUI

When: Thursday 20 October, 3:00-4:30 PM

Where: Glendale Mall OASIS 6101 North Keystone Ave Indianapolis

China is increasingly influential globally, but continues to face obstacles at home. As China's record economic growth continues, the country must still contend with a growing gap between rich and poor, devastating pollution and resource shortages. What strategies can China adapt to sustain its economy while meeting the needs of its people?

When we were both graduate students at the University of California at Berkeley, Susan Erickson introduced me to the joys of studying Chinese and Taiwanese politics ... it is a love affair that has been going on for twenty years now. Susan is one of the area's liveliest and most popular soeakers, this event is wrth making time to attend. It is part of the OASIS "Great Decisions" series, if you would like to attend please contact me at john@sipr.org.
