DEFINITION of 'New Paradigm'

In the investing world, a new paradigm is a totally new way of doing things that has a huge effect on business. New paradigm draws its roots from the idea of a paradigm shift in science, in which technology or new findings completely change the way people think about or interact with something. In business the idea is the same; a whole new way of looking at things.
