Global Economy at Your Fingertips

glob econ rubics cube globeNews about the global economy is everywhere….and sometimes overwhelming. It’s a fast-moving target that affects us all. We’re being constantly spoon fed a lot of data by news sources that have drawn their own conclusions for us, or tweaked the data to make the particular answer they favor seem like a foregone conclusion.

I don’t know about you, but I like to think for myself, and am increasingly frustrated by news bias that passes for reporting these days. The library is one of the few free, convenient places providing all kinds of information without bias. In fact, we passionately want you to be able to think for yourself and draw your own conclusions, whether it’s all points of view on healthcare issues, politics or education.

Take the global economy for example. Did you know you can use our Business Insights Global database to fact check, research, analyze, interpret and understand all kinds of country comparisons and data for yourself? It’s easy and free, right from our website, right there in Research Databases, under “Information & Resources” in the green menu bar.

Warning – it’s a little bit addictive! After reading something in the paper about North American employment trends, I went into Business Insights Global to see a quick graph comparing unemployment rates in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, couldn’t resist clicking on “related articles”, and an hour later realized I was late to meet my friend!

Everything from Gallop polls to research reports and government documents are so easy to search right there. You’ll quickly be comparing countries just for the fun of seeing the graphs and charts, but if you have a more serious need in mind, like market research for your business, you cannot do better than going to Business Insights Global. Try it, and let me know how you like it!

Here are some thought-provoking reads on the Global Economy, just click on the book jacket:
