Try out Business Monitor International

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

BYU currently has trial access to Business Monitor International, a premier provider of global business intelligence. One of BMI’s strengths is country risk analysis. There is also daily news, macroeconomic forecasts, and coverage of 24 industry sectors for 175 nations. BMI does have some similarities to Euromonitor International’s Passport database, which we already have, but there are significant differences.

You can access our trial at until March 11th. Please send feedback to Andy Spackman and help us evaluate this potential acquisition.

Exploring the Global Financial Crisis

Friday, February 8th, 2013

It’s 2013 and we’re already looking to fresh starts and new beginnings – but if we do look back, whatever happened in 2008? What effect did it have on the world as we knew it and how might it impact our futures?

Described by Kenneth P. Thomas as “A compelling, wide-ranging analysis of the many facets of the financial crisis—its causes, its effect globally and regionally, and likely global scenarios for how it may develop further.” Exploring the Global Financial Crisis is a must read for anyone wanting to know the what, why and hows of the Financial Crisis of 2008.
