Big Idea by Anil Gupta

Anil Gupta

How technology and globalization are reshaping the world economy?  What it means for us as individuals and for corporations. Fundamentally as I look at just 12-13 years from now, emerging economies will be half of the world’s GDP and shall account for more than half of the FDI flows from the world. In fact, not just markets and production centres but also business services are emerging as the world’s hotspots for innovation whether its Bangalore or Beijing. I would say globalizing the corporate brain, i.e. we need to be very well informed, be smart and be open about the key hotspots in the world.  We also need to be very capable of integrating and connecting the dots. The diversity of the world will just confuse us. If you think about IBM, Google, Microsoft and Wal-Mart, they are trying to say is that the world is diverse but at the same time, highly interconnected. How can we play with this new economy along with learning from it? So being multipolar, interconnected, and global hotspots are my big idea.
