IBISWorld’s Business Environment Reportsoffer data and analysis that give context to companies, industries, and the U.S. economy. IBIS uses an “outside-looking-in” approach to explain how economic, demographic and other changes impact on people, enterprises and commerce. These reports contain interesting and hard-to-find economic facts and figures.
Business Environment Research Reports center around 7 environments – Consumer Behavior & Attitudes, Developed & Natural Resources, Domestic Economy & External Accounts, Financial Market, Goods and Services Prices, International Economy & Commodities, and Labor & Demographics. Business Environment Research Reports are available as brief reports (3-4 pages) on around 300 key Business Environment indicators, and include such topics as:

In the spirit of the season…tax season that is…we have pulled together a selection of books, DVDs and audiobooks about taxes, monetary and taxation policies, and the history of money. This display presents general interest and scholarly works from the fields of economics, finance, history, law, and philosophy, and includes areas of current research that will be of interest to the Bentley community.
