As someone committed to your career and your industry, you should worry if your company doesn’t look like it’s trying to bite its own tail, with investments into technology and taking business risks. If your company is not investing in eating itself fast enough, you can be sure that a tech or hyphen-tech company will have your company as a snack. Your company is not a safe haven. It will either eat itself, or be eaten by technology. Because the technology treadmill runs very fast, the new jobs are not safe from obsolescence. So as an individual with a few decades of work left inside you, you have to learn to eat and reinvent yourself perpetually, like the ouroboros. In this fascinating talk, our frequent guest, Gaurav Rastogi, tells us why the ancient image of a snake biting its own tail will be the defining portrayal of careers in the decade to come.

Wall Street is used to companies setting and meeting expectations. But recently, all too often companies that play this fail-safe game have begun to fail. What is going on? This week in Global Business, Mahesh Joshi and Gaurav Rastogi are discussing A New Kind of Math, and how today’s leaders should have the ability to build “belief” in a yet unseen future. This requires having the power to suspend skepticism. Just as algebra begins with “let there be an X such that”’s leaders must have the ability to believe in a future that is different from today, in order to make that future happen. And so, despite failures like Theranos, we must learn to believe.

The term frontier markets was coined in 1992 by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and it referred to a subset of emerging markets. Subsequently, frontier indices was established by major providers like Standard & Poor’s, MSCI, Russell Investments and FTSE. The number of frontier markets in these indices ranges from 25 in the MSCI index to 41 in the Russell Frontier Index. The criteria for inclusion, is that it should not already be a component of any emerging market or developed market indices. They must also qualify on parameters such as its economic development, market accessibility, liquidity and foreign investment restrictions. Will the frontier markets be able to challenge the BRIC’s as the next growth opportunity with real economic development, or will they become yet another investment vehicle only for some time.

We have been discussing the Disruption in every industry in recent episodes. Today we have a very special guest, Professor Lalit Johri from the University of Oxford's Said Business School, talking with Global Business host Mahesh Joshi and our series guest, Gaurav Rastogi. Our guest this week brings us the perspective of a 1000+ years old University, and shows us how Universities must perform a dual role- one of transferring functional knowledge or technical skills, and another as seats of cultural learning. The importance of un-learning through peer-dialogue is pointed out emphatically in these times of rapid change. There has been a lot of innovation on imparting technical knowledge through new media, but education institutions must also continue innovate on their roles as culture and values bearers for the societies they work in.
