It is generally accepted that the world is deeply interconnected and that it will become more so. Not true, says global strategy expert Pankaj Ghemawat.

Most people agree that there is an ongoing and unstoppable trend towards more globalisation. Some people think this is good, some that it is bad, but much business and political discourse accepts that it is true. But it is not.

The Iscar next-gen on being a TV singing star in her native Israel, and releasing her first album.
