These sites can help in various ways: Business Monitor, EIU, and Global Insight for ready reviews of country political and economic developments, including investment environments and industries; Investext for quality brokerage house reports on countries, industries, and companies; eLibrary for World Bank research and policy publications. The IMF "Country Reports" include detailed reviews of economic policy issues in certain member nations. Other international agencies covering Latin America and Asia also offer websites with member country data and economic surveys.
The PDF reports in Investext can save considerable time previously spent researching global firms and industries via scattered press sources. In fact, they contain much information that is not available to us in any other way.
