Have you looked at the Lexis Nexis Academic database recently? It could help you answer questions such as:
– How have U.S. fiscal and foreign policies influenced U.S.-China trade?
– How are Afghan women affected by U.S. involvement in their country?
– How are world stock markets reacting to banking reforms in the U.S.?
Country Watch and Ethnic News Watch are other journal/news article indexes that could assist with such topics. All are accessible through the Find a Database tab library’s home page.
