Guest Lecture: "Compressed Capitalism, Globalization, and the Fate of Indian Development, " by Anthony D'Costa

Dear Colleagues and Friends,
ASUPS is organizing a lecture titled "Compressed Capitalism, Globalization, and the Fate of Indian Development" by Professor Anthony P. D'Costa on Thursday April 2, 2015 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. in Trimble Forum.
Professor D'Costa is an esteemed colleague of mine who is originally from India, but who now teaches at the University of Melbourne in Australia. He is known for his work on economic development of India and the concept of "compressed capitalism". I am sure you will find his lecture thought-provoking, should you and your students decide to attend it.
I would be grateful if you can distribute the attached flyer (which contains an abstract of the talk and also Professor D'Costa's biographical sketch) to your colleagues, announce this lecture in your classes, perhaps offer an extra-credit opportunity to your students for attending this lecture and reporting on it, and thus help in the publicity efforts.
thank you for your kind attention,
Devparna Roy, Ph.D.
