The Economic Times
March 2, 2014

About a year ago, the chairman and managing director of Mahindra & Mahindra shared his perspective about the contemporary world with the graduating students of the National Institute of Design (NID). Quoting from Daniel Pink's A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers will Rule the Future, Anand Mahindra said: "We are moving from an economy and a society built on the logical, computer-like capabilities of the Information Age to one built on the inventive, big-picture capabilities of what's rising in its place, the Conceptual Age

How does South Africa develop a new economic order?

Saville believes the answer lies in work done by Pankaj Ghemawat, a business strategist at IESE Business School in Spain. Ghemawat developed a framework called TCIP (trade, capital, information and people). He showed that as communities connect and achieve higher flows of the TCIP ingredients, their incomes grow, unemployment falls and income inequality drops.

Globalization trends, a review
World Fututre Online
February 18, 2014

Malaysia has reduced its merchandise trade surplus from the 18% of its GDP in 2005 to the 10% in 2012, with reductions on the depth of merchandise exports and imports.


 While some experts exult over hyperglobalization, others worry whether globalization may be “over.” But what has actually been happening-at the global level, by region, and at the level of individual countries? The Depth Index of Globalization (DIG) 2013, assembled with Steven Altman and released last November, provides answers based on hard data on the depth of international trade, capital, information and people flows for 139 countries that account for 99 percent of the world’s GDP and 95 percent of its population.

Globalización y algo más
El Universal de Caracas
February 13, 2014

El paso a una sociedad globalizada, como la del presente, tiene una diferencia sustancial con anteriores procesos globalizadores, el cual ha evolucionado dentro del sistema capitalista industrial y es el componente diría fundamental que caracteriza este sistema globalizado, que es el conocimiento intensivo, donde éste es el factor fundamental. Es lo que se denomina hoy en día el capital intangible. Por ello el índice de que países o regiones son las más globalizadas debe tomar en cuenta los siguientes indicadores que  son muy significativos: comparar el tamaño global de la economía de un país con el porcentaje de flujos comerciales, de capital, información y personas con la economía mundial. En ese sentido la afirmación del académico Panjak Ghemawat "...Las multinacionales de los países desarrollados están globalizando operaciones y objetivos de ventas, pero no avanzan al mismo ritmo en cuanto a la diversidad y movilidad de sus plantillas. Sin duda, se trata de una muestra palpable de que los flujos comerciales y de capital siempre van por delante de las personas. ..".

Australia ranked 81st out of 139 countries in globalisation survey
The Australian
February 6, 2014

A NEW survey of international integration ranks Australia only 81st out of 139 countries, and a lowly 130th for trade enmeshment.

"Australia's difficulties mostly come down to its narrow range of commodity focused export products and its high manufacturing costs," said Pankaj Ghemawat, professor of global strategy at the IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain, which conducts the globalisation survey.

Ein Totgesagter leistet Widerstand
Stuttgarter-Zeitung.de
January 25, 2014

Solche Sätze eines Konzernchefs muss man nicht auf die Goldwaage legen. Sie dienen dazu, die Gewerkschaften nicht übermütig werden zu lassen, sind Teil des alltäglichen Klassenkampfes. Martin Winterkorn, Pischetsrieders Nachfolger als VW-Lenker, war schon etwas gnädiger – trotz einbrechender Gewinne. Seat habe unter dem VW-Schirm eine „blendende Zukunft“, versprach er im März 2009. Doch wenige Tage darauf erschien in der Sonntagsausgabe der spanischen Tageszeitung „El País“ ein Interview mit dem indischen Volkswirt Pankaj Ghemawat, der an der IESE Business School in Barcelona arbeitet. Er sprach Worte wie Donnerhall: „Die Automobilindustrie wird in Spanien nicht länger als fünf Jahre überleben“, sagte er und wurde konkret: „Auch wenn sich die katalanische Regierung bemüht, die Seat-Fabrik in Martorell zu retten, hat die Fabrik keine Aussicht zu wachsen. Es ist eine Frage der Zeit, bis sie an einen anderen Ort verlagert wird. Und im Rest Spaniens wird dasselbe geschehen.“

A Conversation With: Pankaj Ghemawat, IESE Business School Professor
The New York Times
January 23, 2014


Pankaj Ghemawat, a professor of global strategy at the IESE business school in Madrid, and Steven Altman, a senior research associate at IESE, released the 2013 Depth of Globalization report in November, which measures the globalization levels of 139 countries based on flows of trade, capital, information and people. The study found that India, ranked 123rd, was one of the least globalized economies.

India Ink spoke with Mr. Ghemawat about the reasons for India’s ranking and why emerging economies make up the bottom 10 of his study’s list.

京东:势能叠加者的战斗
iDoNews
January 22, 2014

 跟几位朋友探讨过这个话题,有朋友认为京东是一个“机会主义者”,刘强东每次总能找到准确的切入点,坚决大胆投入,所以才有了今天。也有好友说,人们总是习惯于认为企业的成功都是源于某种“一招鲜”,但世上哪有那么多杀招,京东的今天是一点一滴做起来的,它犯错比别人少,学东西比别人快。

这两个解读我都很喜欢,也很喜欢另外一句话:“互联网是一块如此广袤的未开垦地,应该在成本上升之前尽可能地夺取领地(哈佛商学院教授Pankaj Ghemawat, 2004 )。”

Massive open online courses – or Moocs – are web-based classes that offer students self-paced learning in their subject of choice.

Although these are non-degree programmes, the content of many Moocs is often  similar to that of a university-level course. Some Mooc platforms, including Coursera and EdX, partner with top universities to offer courses.

Understanding globalization
Greater Kashmir
January 21, 2014


The two recent  noted scholars who have contributed a great deal to our understanding the process of globalization are Thomas Friedman ( the Pulitzer award winning New York Times columnist and author of best seller ‘The World is Flat ‘) and Pankaj Ghemat (Harvard Professor and the author of much acclaimed  book ‘World 3.0’). Both present a contradictory view of how ideas, people and goods across borders are leading to globalised world.

From Davos, a View on the State of Globalization
Bloomberg Business Week
January 16, 2014

Progress on the free movement of people and information is also being stymied. A lobbying coalition that included General Electric (GE) and Google (GOOG) failed to get Congress to ease immigration limits last year despite arguments that American companies can’t find enough tech workers. Financial hubs such as Singapore and the U.K. are making it harder for companies to hire foreigners following domestic protests. “Policies to promote more immigration into the advanced economies are going to be a hard sell until unemployment rates drop,” according to the “Depth Index of Globalization 2013,” a 276-page study by IESE, the graduate business school of the University of Navarra in Spain. Meanwhile, the NSA’s Prism spying scandal has hurt U.S. suppliers of cloud computing as countries opt to keep data in home-based clouds.

Mondialisation. Le mouvement de mondialisation de l’économie a du mal à repartir depuis la crise financière de 2008, constate Pankaj Ghemawat, un des auteurs du rapport annuel sur l’indice de globalisation de la planète, établi à partir des informations recueillies dans 137 pays et sur douze indicateurs . Le degré de globalisation de l’économie mondiale rete inférieur en 2012 par rapport à 2008. La zone la plus intégrée est toujours l’Europe. Honk Kong est presque 150 fois plus connnectée au reste du monde que l’Iran, qui se situe au dernier rangs.

Is China doing more to help the global economy than Germany?
Quartz
January 8, 2014

“Look at the difference between advanced and emerging economies, how much rebalancing there already has been in China—exports close to 35% of its GDP, now close to 25% of GDP, China really has rebalanced to a fairly significant extent,” economist Pankaj Ghemawat told Quartz. ”[That is] one of the reasons why world trade is a bit lower than it otherwise would be—if China simply maintained its share, we might be setting all-time highs of trade as a percentage of GDP. It’s a positive change compared to Germany, looking at the data, to rebalance within in Europe the way the Chinese had already done.”

Where Is This Turkish Cloud’s Silver Lining?
The Wall Street Journal
January 8, 2014

“Political uncertainty can’t be helping,” said Pankaj Ghemawat, an economist who teaches at IESE Business School in Spain. The trade deficit “continues to provide a drag” despite an expectation that it would shrink with the lira deterioration, he said.

Turkey may also face shortfalls and higher costs in funding its external imbalances as the Fed tapering hits foreign demand, Mr. Ghemawat added. Case in point: the government’s benchmark two-year bond yields have jumped above 10% to near two-year highs from a record low of 4.61% mid-May. Yields rise as bond prices fall.

EU-Freizügigkeit: Nur wenige Europäer wechseln in ein anderes Land

January 2, 2014

Bei einer Gesamtzahl von 333 Millionen EU-Bürgern (inklusive Lettland) ist das ein erstaunlich geringer Prozentsatz: Nicht einmal 5 Prozent aller EU-Bürger bewegen sich demnach aus ihrem Heimatland.

Diese Zahlen stimmen mit jenen überein, die der Ökonom Pankaj Ghemawat in seinem Buch „World 3.0“ erhoben hat. Ghemawat schreibt in seiner Untersuchung, dass die Idee einer globalen Arbeits-Wanderung ein Märchen ist: Die Zahlen weltweit belegen, dass weniger als 10 Prozent aller Menschen ihr Heimatland dauerhaft verlassen (mehr zu diesem Dilemma hier).
