� The first such guide � It isn't enough to rely on local or even national knowledge bases any more "The emerging global economy," "transnational corporation," "the world marketplace"--these phases will define the business environment in the twenty-first century. And here is how it works: A sports car is financed in Japan, designed in Italy, and assembled in Indiana, Mexico, and France, using advanced electronic components invented in New Jersey and manufactured in Korea. Hard to believe? Think about all the cross-border mergers and partnerships created in the last few years alone! Changes in the economy required business professionals and researchers to learn about new sources of information, as well as to expand their understanding of international business subjects. The sources, language, document coding, and definitions are different--truly foreign. International Business Information was written to help business professionals find and use the latest and best business information, regardless of source of origin. Among other subjects covered: Key international business publications; important new databases; Company information sources; international accounting standards and practices; international marketing resources; disclosure requirements for major stock exchanges; export/import sources and information; and industrial and economic statistics.
