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.

April 19: Charles Dhanaraj explains whether China and india are rivals or allies

Charles Dhanaraj is a very insightful expert on the rapidly emerging BRIC economies (Brazil, Russia, India, China)

When: Wednesday May 17, talk 11:00-noon, lunch noon - 12:45

Where: North United Methodist Church, N. Meridian St. at 38th St.

China and India have emerged on the world stage, after following different paths toward rapid economic growth. Will China and India work closer together or compete with each other to become major world powers? How will their growth affect the U.S. economy and strategic interests?

These days the buzzword is "Chindia," or as the Guardian's headline put it, "where the world's workshop meets its office." No more skirmishes or war between the two Asian giants, cooperation to achieve prosperity is the game today. I remain skeptical ... it is a very long border these two prickly super-civilizations share. I expect Charles Dhanaraj, professor of management at the Kelley School of Business, to illuminate the topic. Thanks to the splendid conference on emerging markets that he organized last year, Charles should perhaps be called the BRIC-man.
