ARE YOU FEELING OVERWHELMED BY INFORMATION
& afraid of not distinguishing vital signals from all the noise?

We live and work in an environment of mounting complexity and a glut of information - both can lead to a sense of confusion.
Yet when it comes to making investment and business decisions confusion can be costly.
The Monthly Barometer provides you with prescient and succinct analysis of what’s out there.

It scans the horizon for you.

“Even for a decision-maker who has wide access to information, the Monthly Barometer provides an essential tool for understanding the fundamental political, economic and social forces at work.”

KLAUS SCHWAB Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum, Switzerland

“With no complex products to sell and no ideological axe to grind, the Barometer is that rare independent insight into global financial and economic trends. More importantly it is written by people who have wider perspectives and care about the real challenges of our times which extend beyond the role of finance.”

CHANDRAN NAIR CEO and Founder, Global Institute for Tomorrow, Hong Kong

“We are overloaded with information and opinion: the question is where to find succinct insight. One of the best answers is the Monthly Barometer. It spots the links between the world’s disparate trends: it makes me think. Five minutes a month could not be better spent.”

ADAIR TURNER Chairman, Institute for New Economic Thinking, UK
