Additional web access now is available to Global Insight (GI), a comprehensive source for historic economic and financial data, spanning over 200 countries and 170 industries. In addition to the existing access to Global Insight data via WRDS, MIT affiliates now may also access the database directly from the GI webpage at http://libraries.mit.edu/get/gi.
This new interface provides access to datasets on economies and financial markets worldwide, plus new links to news and analysis. Available data include OECD Main Economic Indicators; IMF International Financial Statistics and Balance of Payments Statistics; and various other data from national banks on topics such as foreign debt, exchange rates, money supply, and employment, among others.
Access Global Insight via:
- Global Insight Web at http://libraries.mit.edu/get/gi
