Anup is one of the foremost researchers on the changing economics of listed companies.
He examines how knowledge-based companies, such as Facebook, Alphabet, and Microsoft, supplant asset- and infrastructure-intensive companies, such as Walmart, General Motors, and Exxon-Mobil, in capital creation and employment generation.
His research highlights key elements disrupted by this progression: accelerating corporate demise and emerging hyper-competition; changing role of the board of directors; shifts in executive incentive plans; new auditing and financial reporting requirements; and a growing need for highly skilled human capital.
