Avoiding the middle income trap: Which way for Indonesia?
By Edward Gustely

23 October 2018

Within the next two decades Indonesia aspires to generate prosperity while leaving no citizen behind as it tries to catch up with high-income economies.  Realizing these goals requires sustained high growth and job creation as well as reduced economic inequality.  Can Indonesia achieve this?

As we approach Indonesia's 2019 presidential election, Mr. Gustely believes Indonesia can succeed depending on the economic path chosen. The costs of complacency – and the rewards for action – are high and rising.

Mr. Edward Gustely is the Managing Director of Penida Capital Advisors Ltd. He has a wealth of  experience in emerging markets and served as the Senior Advisor to four Indonesian Finance Ministers, including Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati (2005-10).

The last wild men of Borneo
By Carl Hoffman

13 November 2018

The long and persistent Western fantasy of “going native”—of shedding the conventions of “civilization” and seeking life’s meaning among “exotic” indigenous peoples—is at the heart of the intertwined stories that Carl Hoffman unravels in his riveting narrative, THE LAST WILD MEN OF BORNEO: A True Story of Death and Treasure. In the tradition of his New York Times bestseller, Savage Harvest, Hoffman explores questions about our relationship with tribal peoples and their vanishing cultures as he recreates the fascinating stories of two very different men, a Swiss environmental warrior, Bruno Manser, and an American art dealer, Michael Palmieri, who sought escape and found personal fulfillment in the wilds of Borneo.

Records & Rebellions: Empowering Indonesia
By Kartika Jahja et al.

4 December 2018

Music is a great way to move communities and drive change in Indonesia. Lots of Indonesian music is produced but little is exported and thus known abroad. Yet the influence of modern Indonesian musicians is great not only through their music and lyrics but also through the on-line communities they lead.

Kartika Jahja and other artists-activists will not only talk about the meaning of modern Indonesian music in today’s society but also give a live performance.

Kartika is an independent singer-songwriter with the band  Tika and the Dissidents as well as an activist on the issue of gender and sexuality. Outside of music and activism, she is also a published writer, actress, and entrepreneur. In November 2016, she made the list of "BBC 100 Women" which is a list of the 100 most inspiring and influential women from around the globe.
