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.

February 5: Learn about the challenges facing "Post-Conflict Central America”


The World Bank's chief economist for Latin America and the Caribbean eplains what is to be done to address Central America (and perhaps Cuba too)

When: Monday February 5 7:00 PM
Where: Marian College Allison Mansion

“Politics and Poverty in Post-Conflict Central America”
Dr. Ulrich Lächler, the World Bank's lead economist for Latin America and the Caribbean Region, will speak at Marian College as part of the Franciscan Center for Global Studies Global Speaker series.

Dr. Lächler is a German national, who grew up in Venezuela and now resides in Miami. He has been with the World Bank for 20 years, working mostly on Latin America, with particular attention to Central America. Before joining the World Bank, Ulrich Lächler headed a research team at the Kiel Institute of Economics in Kiel, West Germany. Before that, he was an assistant professor in economics at Columbia University (New York City) and at the University of Maryland at College Park. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Columbia University (where his doctoral thesis advisor was this year’s Nobel Prize winner, Professor Edmund Phelps).
