A lot of interesting events have happened this year in the business and political world.

The first few months of 2008 saw the crude oil prices touching record heights, leading to high inflation and commodity prices. This affects petrol and diesel prices in India. Read up on the debate on raising the fuel prices Versus the government absorbing the full cost, reducing duties, etc. Read up on fuel pricing in India, how the government owned oil PSUs make the losses, and get subsidized by the oil bonds again by the government. This can be a hot GD topic.

Towards the end of January, stock markets around the world plunge on growing fears of US recession, and the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis. Read up on the whole subprime crisis, defaulting the bad loans, etc.

Rising food and fuel prices trigger riots and unrest in the Third World. Countries like Zimbabwe have suffered terribly. Expect a tricky question - How would you handle the situation if you were Zimbabwe's president?

June 27 - After three decades as the Chairman of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates steps down from daily duties to concentrate on philanthropy. Expect a few questions or a hot GD on humanitarian side of a business.

August 8–24 - The 2008 Summer Olympics take place in Beijing, China. This prompts a group discussion topic - How do Sports affect businesses?

October 3 - Global financial crisis - US President George W. Bush signs the revised Emergency Economic Stabilization Act into law, creating a 700 billion dollar Treasury fund to purchase failing bank assets. Read up on differing views on whether the government should save the banks.

October 22 - The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully launches Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft on a lunar exploration mission. What are your views on expenditure on space exploration, as against taking economic measures to help businesses?

November 4 - Barack Obama becomes the first African-American President-elect. Expect questions / group discussion on leadership and diversity.

November 26 - November 29 - A series of terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India kills 188, and injures at least 294. Draws the whole world's attention towards global terrorism, lapses in Indian security / law enforcement agencies and their capabilities. Expect a group discussion on how terrorism affects economy and businesses. If the panel decides to throw something provocative, expect the topic - "Should India attack Pakistan?"

Swine Flu has become a pandemic. What steps should you, as a leader of an organization take in the event of such a pandemic, contagious and deadly disease?

Nice explanation.. I found some topics want to share with you guys

Vada-pav vs. Mc Donald Burger

Communism has lost its relevance

Cinema is at most entertainment with a degenerating effect

Journalism should be out of the premises of censorship

In our society, leadership should be entrusted to the youth and not to the old

Educated Indian lacks national commitment

Beauty contests don’t fit into the Indian culture

Terrorism is like a virus – very easy to spread, very difficult to contain

I think Climate Change and recent controversy in Copenhagen summit in Dec, 2009 and over the reports by Nobel Prize winning International Panel on Climate Change, headed by an Indian, Mr. R.K.Pachauri, would be oft-repeated topics in most b-schoold GDs.

Year 2010 has (till date) seen a series of terrorist attacks on many places world over. Jan 1st saw a suicide bombing attack in Pakistan. Feb 13th saw an attack on the German Bakery, Pune. Expect a discussion topic on solutions for terrorism, or whose responsibility it is to provide protection from terrorism - public, businesses or the government.

February 3 saw the sculpture L'Homme qui marche sold for a record US$103.7 million. Expect a question on your views on commercializing art.

Topics for 2010

  • World cup season received a lot of enthusiasm and attention by the media. Is commercialization of sports justified?
  • The biggest ever oil spill took place in the Gulf of Mexico. In India, just a month after Indian govt reaches verdict on the Bhopal tragedy, another chlorine leak takes place at Mumbai. Expect a discussion on corporate social responsibility, and related issues.
