If you need to know about country stability and risk, there are two MIRC services you ought to be looking at: Bloomberg and BMI Research.
On-campus users may also wish to look at Bloomberg, accessible in the MIRC Bloomberg Suite. The Bloomberg Crisis Monitor <CRIS> is the page to start from.
The Crisis Monitor brings together economic and market data related to financial or political crises in three areas of the world – Europe (our default view), the Middle East and the United States.
Switch between regional screens using the orange drop-down menu at the top left. Data varies for each region but gives an overview of major markets affecting the economies – including equity, bond and credit – alongside access to various key economic indicators and news items essential to review the relative financial health of a country and its likelihood of default on its debts.
If it’s rankings or data that you’re looking for, access these from the Data & Forecasting tab at the top-right of the BMI screen. Within the Indices page, you will find BMI’s Country Risk Index which provides a country-comparative evaluation of the political, economic and operational risks to stability over a short- and long-term time horizon.
If you have any questions whatsoever about sourcing macroeconomic indicators or risk analyses, please just ask MIRC staff!
