Description: Indonesia, a centuries old trade hub is gaining new momentum in global business. At first glance, this archipelago of 17,508 islands would seem an excellent candidate for historic Base of the Pyramid (BoP) business strategies. Its 237 million people, the fourth largest populous nation in the world, comprise a burgeoning new consumer market while supplying labor and resources for business development. But new business strategies are emerging from earlier BoP approaches (Prahalad & Hart, 2004, 2005). Students enrolled in this course will examine, together with business, government and non-governmental leaders working in Indonesia, new and emergent business practices. New strategies hold the promise of moving beyond solely a profit motive to encompass improving the lives and circumstances of those people who live at the Base of the Pyramid, on less than $2 a day.
