Forthcoming Special Reports From BMI

We are currently producing several special reports for release in December 2013 and January 2014.

First up, as you might expect, we are working on our outlook for 2014, which will cover the global economy, all regions of the world, the commodities market, and the geopolitical landscape.

Secondly, we are preparing a special report on our selected top 10 African 'lion' economies over the coming decade.

Thirdly, we are assessing the outlook for the eurozone over the next five years, and aim to answer some of the 'big' questions facing the single-currency bloc.

Other reports on other regions and industries are also in the works. As always, we will keep you updated on these projects on this blog and in our online store.

This Week's Trivia Question

Last week's question, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination, retained that theme and also the same era: Three weeks before Kennedy was assassinated, the president of a US-friendly country was ousted in a coup that led to his violent death. Who was that individual? (Hint: the US would become increasingly involved in that country's affairs after Kennedy's death.) The answer is South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem.

This week's question changes topic entirely and is as follows: The year 2013 marks the 140th anniversary of the opening of the London Underground. How many different countries' names are incorporated into the names of stations on the official tube map (i.e. not the map that shows all London railway connections), and what are those countries?
