Redlands, Calif. (August 24, 2012) Are nations between India and Japan preparing for growth? How sustainable will these infrastructure projects be? Will there be another bust or boom cycle? These are some of the topics that the International Academic Forum will be discussing at the 3rd Asian Business and Management Conference (ABMC). Johannes Moenius, University of Redlands School of Business associate professor, is scheduled to speak at the event and discuss the geographic profile of an economic crisis.
