In this interesting and hands-on workshop, led by Kanako Yamada (owner of Kodama Forset), you will learn the skills to help you make your very own Kokedama. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to ask questions from an expert about this exquisite Japanese art form. All of the supplies needed will be provided to make unique Kokedama, including two plants from Kanako's selection, moss, soils and all other materials. (Please bring your apron and grove if you want.) Create a unique, fun-to-make Kokedama that you can take home and enjoy, or give as a wonderful living gift.

4:00 PM Talk: A Korean Model of Economic Development In this presentation, Myung-koo Kang at Baruch College will address how South Korea has achieved rapid economic success by looking into the rise of U.S.-trained technocrats and scholars in Korea's economic policymaking.

He will review why and how Korea's financial system has diverged drastically from the Japanese model and has turned to the U.S. model, which is often regarded as a more market-oriented financial system for the past several decades. He will explain this radical shift, which occurred in the 1980s and 1990s, by tracing the rise of U.S.-trained Korean economists in Korean economic policymaking networks.

The talk will introduce how U.S.-trained high-ranking officials in the Korean economic bureaucracy ascended as a core group in the economic policymaking and organized the policymaking network in a highly hierarchical way, putting the Economic Planning Board at the apex, and linking the Korea Development Institute with other U.S.-trained economists in public and private institutes and in academia. A series of financial liberalization reforms since the early 1980s will be discussed in the context of the idiosyncratic institutional features of Korea's economic policymaking networks.

The event will take place in the GPS classroom 3203. Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure. There will be signage to direct you from Pangea to GPS.

Admission/Cost: FREE but Registration Required.

5:30 PM Lecture: World in Transition In the new book, A New Reality: Human Evolution for a Sustainable Future, Jonathan Salk and David Dewane take a look at the problems presented by population growth and changing human values. The book is a revised version of an earlier publication Jonathan wrote with his father, visionary scientist Jonas Salk, who developed the polio vaccine. At the event, Salk will discuss how we're transitioning from a time of competition to a time of cooperation. A book signing will follow the talk and copies of the book will be available for purchase from the publisher.
