Economic forecasting

Not so many years ago, it took big bucks or lots of free time poking through libraries to lay your hands on first-rate economic forecasting. But now Web sites serve the stuff up free and at your convenience. One such find is the International Monetary Fund's (IMF's) "World Economic Outlook," (http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/weo/1999/02/index.htm) which provides detailed information on first world and emerging-nation economies and also makes predictions (for instance: IMF sees the Asian economies exiting their crisis and moving into recovery). They're bulky Adobe Acrobat files--figure 2.6MB to download all of them--but this top-drawer information warrants the download times.
