Stratfor's Core Products and Services - Description

Regional Daybooks

Stratfor's Daybooks are regional compilations of open source material, gathered almost exclusively from non-Western media sources and featuring information largely outside of the English language. While the daybooks are not intended to be comprehensive, their design includes a brief synopsis of significant daily developments, anomalous events and other leading edge indicators. Each daybook item includes a link to the original article as well as analytical commentary on the item's noteworthiness. There are 7 regions upon which content is covered: Europe, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Former Soviet Union (FSU), East Asia, South Asia, Latin American(LATAM), and Africa. One of the components of the daybooks is to take regional and foreign language press and place it into context with an assessment. Starting packages at $3,280 per user, with many options available.

Post-China 16 (PC16)

The PC 16 report identifies and explores the 16 countries that will succeed China’s faltering economy.

As China’s economy begins to shift beyond the low-end manufacturing and export-led model that defined its dramatic three-decade rise, a new group of countries is emerging to assume that role in the global economy.

The outlines of this group, what we call the Post China 16 (or “PC16”) are only now coming into focus. Indeed, the specific countries may change and the respective roles each country plays in this next phase of the global economy remain to be seen fully. While movement in two leading indicator industries (textiles and mobile phone assembly) signals the beginning of this shift, many believe the transition is still in its infancy; few if any reliable trade numbers or volumes now exist to plot the contours of this shift.

Stratfor has concluded: a shift is already well underway and this report covers 3 core areas:

- Description of why each country is included
- Contextual overview describing how each country fits within the greater concept of the post-BRIC global economy
- Overview of the challenges each country will face as they try to fill this space
