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 21: A first release of a study of the economic impact of Mexico on Indiana

A preliminary release of findings from a study of economic relations between Mexico and Indiana

When: Friday April 21, 10:00 AM

Where: Sagamore Institute

This will be a preliminary discussion of an important study of the economic connections between Mexico and Indiana. How great are these connections? ENORMOUS! Mexico is by far the second biggest trading partner for Indiana (after Canada), with the state's exports to Mexico increasing eightfold in the 11 years since NAFTA was signed. Immigration from Mexico has been fueling the state's economic growth. The results we'll discuss on April 21 will be something of a snapshot of the size and significance of the ties between Indiana and Mexico today. The final study, released in late July, will examine trends into the future and will present a strategic vision for how Indiana can successfully face the difficulties that lie ahead.
