China In The Year 2020: Three Political Scenarios (Black Swan Forum)

Jeff Carr over at IntelFusion is sponsoring a web conference through his Black Swan Forum on the future of China featuring Cheng Li, Senior Fellow at the John L. Thornton China Center of the Brookings Institution on March 3 from 1300-1400 PST. You will have to drop Jeff a note at the Black Swan Forum (email address in the flyer below) to get a login but he is willing to open the conference up to anyone who meets the criteria he outlines.

(A note about the embed below: I am testing a new service name Issuu.com to embed pdfs into blogs. Obviously, it would be a better example if this pdf had multiple pages but the process of using Issuu.com to upload a pdf and make it immediately available to readers is very easy and, hopefully, compelling. If you have any comments on the user experience, don't hesitate to leave them)

Kris,
The embedded doc function worked perfectly. It was quick and tidy. However, the zooming feature was a little tough to handle for the first few seconds - almost TOO user-friendly, you can move it around faster than you can read it!

Thanks for the information - this was an early thesis topic I considered - how far and in what regions does China encroach on US areas of interest before real conflict breaks out - "Prognosis on the Resource Wars through 2020." Or something. I'll bet it will be an interesting forum.
