We use public resources for our research. A quick and dirty list of where we get the rawer stuff to work on.
(a) Day to day readings come mainly from RSS feeds, GIC/Citibank etc reports, horizon scans and foreign newspapers and magazines. We break the list into rough domains below.
(b) We go overseas several times a year to ‘future-y’ seminars, or in emerging markets, to seminars that give a glimpse of the rapid changes in their home markets.
