Starting with a Country?

Use the Business Source Complete database to find country overviews of the economic situation. 

  • Go to Advanced Search.
  • Enter a country in the search box.
  • Choose "Country Reports" under publication type.
  • Pay particular attention to: Country Profiles; OECD Economic Surveys.; Country/Territory Reports: Country Monitor Reports.

Another option is to review the Country Reports from the Economist Intelligence Unit. These provide an excellent narrative of the political and economic conditions in a country.
