State Capitalism BRICS Style   12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Is the state gaining or losing ground? This question looms large in the aftermath of the financial crisis and the Great Recession. Industrial policy is again viewed as an option and state capitalism is no longer in retreat. Developing countries are closely scrutinizing the initiatives of the BRICS as these countries adjust to new global and local imperatives. Hence the recent evolution and performance of the state sector and the likely future direction of state policies with respect to state owned enterprises, is a matter of the greatest interest. These are the topic areas to be tackled by three distinguished speakers who will be participating in a seminar organized by the Growth Dialogue at GWSB on October 31st. Brazil, China and India will be the focus of attention with the speakers discussing how each of these countries is attempting to strike a balance between state and market capitalism so as to achieve desired economic outcomes. Free lunch is provided.

Urinetown: The Musical   7:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
