Global Business Intel: Top Sources - Far Better Than Mainstream Media. Sometimes less-processed "unwashed" intelligence emanating from sources closer to the flashpoint of the activity are far more reflective of international reality than mainstream and social media versions.
Since Wikileaks decided to launch its expose of Stratfor, an international intelligence, analysis and custom forecasting "think tank" to some Fortune 500 Companies, the intended victim has been getting a great deal of attention and is actually acquiring new clients. It is rather expensive to use their "custom intelligence and strategic planning" services, but you can glean a great deal of wonderful information every day directly from their web site. There are also several other sites which are worth reviewing to get a decidedly better-informed and sharper focus on global events, and I though it might be of benefit to the readers of both The Internationalist Page Blog and The InfoSphere Business Alerts And Intelligence Blog.
Following is a collection of excellent resources. While many offer certain free services, a number of them do charge for preferred or custom services. Click on each hyperlink, explore the source and what it may have to offer you and your business, then click on your browser's "BACK" Button, and return here to look at the next.
Just as an aside, a great many of these sources are consolidated into numerous of our Twitter Feeds, effectively giving you the highlights of many of these sources.
