STRATFOR This Austin firm began a decade ago as a global intelligence
consulting firm, and now offers "intelligence to consumers,
corporations, news organizations, publishers and web portals." In
short, they have broadened their customer base. As they put it,
intelligence "is insightful, rich with history and willing to forecast
the future. Our staff in Austin takes the best practices of
intelligence analysis, combines it with the rigors of journalism and
delivers knowledge about the world." As one would expect, they cover
the world, and they do cover a significant number of economic issues
around the world. Their site is organized both by region and by topic.
They offer discounted prices to colleges and universities with site
licenses as well as discounts to students.
