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.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

March 28: A first chance to hear Charles Dhanaraj on India and China

This talk concludes the Indiana Council on World Affairs "Great Decisions" series. Prof. Dhanaraj will just have returned from time spent in India, Singapore, and elsewhere in Asia. It should be very good.

When: Tuesday March 28 -- registration at 7:00, program runs 7:30-9:00 PM

Where: Butler University, Pharmacy Building

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?

Charles Dhanaraj is carving out a unique space of expertise in the business of the rapidly growing economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China. But unlike some academics and business commentators, Charles keeps a keen eye on the social costs that go along with the booming business opportunities.

For more on this topic, see the IndyBuzz blurb on Charles's upcoming presentation to the Mid-North Shepherd's Center ... you can catch him again on April 19. For a different a more geo-strategic analysis of China and India's relations, check out Susan Erickson at the Church of the Saviour February 15.
