The evolution of apprenticeships
Apprenticeships and employability change lives in ways that no subsidy ever can.
The new world of education
In a world where Google knows everything, knowledge is useless. Learning how to learn is more important.
The new world of work
We are looking at a paradigm shift where the average tenure of an employee is shrinking and new non-office workplaces are emerging.
The new world of capitalism
Modern corporations are more valued for their intangible assets than their fixed assets – their brand, their intellectual property, their research, their human capital etc.,

The new world of globalization
While the Indian diaspora is a strong community, it is not likely to grow substantially from now on due to many reasons, stricter visa regime for one. The ideas are now mobile but capital not so much.
India’s biggest problem may not be jobs!
Here’s an interesting take on jobs vs employed poverty.
We need more productive enterprises
India has 64M enterprises but the US economy is 8 times bigger with only 22M enterprises. We need productive enterprises rather than 63M enterprises.
The jobs vs wages conundrum
India is changing because it has finally realized that its problem is not jobs but wages. The youth today realizes that there is an opportunity cost to their time.
