5 Sources for Keeping Up with International News

Jim Meszaros

Last week, my colleagues Greg McCarthy and Crystal Benton put together a list of must-reads on defense news sources. This week, I’d like to share my favorite sources of international news across various mediums.

READ the beyondbrics blog written by Financial Times reporters around the world. It’s great for short news items on economic, investment and business trends in emerging markets. You can sign up to have it delivered to your e-mail every morning.

FOLLOW Foreign Policy’s blogs, The Cable and Passport. The Cable’s Josh Rogin provides timely insights into U.S. foreign policy and national security issues, while FP’s editors offer commentary on a variety of international political, economic and security issues.

SUBSCRIBE to Stratfor, a subscription-based global intelligence service, with real-time analysis of events around the world, excellent special reports, and founder George Friedman’s thoughtful Geopolitical Weekly column. You can customize how much or how little analysis you want to receive (and pay for) daily.

SIGN-UP to get excellent economic and business global forecasting from The Economist Intelligence Unit. A good source for regional and country data, as well as trade, commodities, global risk and exchange rates forecasts.

WATCH Fareed Zakaria’s Global Public Square program on CNN, which features interviews with newsmakers on current international issues. It’s now available for download on iTunes if you miss the Sunday broadcast.
