How to Use the Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal is still probably the best source for substantive financial journalism.

Learn how to use it to maximum effect.

So read the the Irwin Guide to Using the Wall Street Journal.

We also get it in an online version.

Everyday, the Journal prints a lot of data on everything from international balance of payments, to call options, to the performance of mutual funds.

A good guide like this can show you where to find that information, why you should pay attention, and the connections between the numbers.

Here's a complete list of our Wall Street Journal links

Foreign Country Laws Regarding Business

Researching business law can be tricky.  I recommend that you begin with article that summarizes business law on a foreign country in regards to a certain issue: labor laws, the environment, etc 

Go to these databases:
Emerald  (very useful for laws governing labor)
Lexis Nexis (search either foreign news sources or legal journals)
Academic Search Complete 

You will get material that summarizes how the law is actually applied and what matters. THEN you can look up actual laws here.
