What in the World is Going On?


WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?

A GLOBAL INTELLIGENCE BRIEFING FOR CEOs

This is a paper presented several weeks ago by Herb Meyer at a Davos, Switzerland , meeting which was attended by most of the CEOs from all the major international corporations- - a very good summary of today's key trends and a perspective one seldom sees.

Meyer served during the Reagan administration as special assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council. In these positions, he managed production of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior U.S.Government official to forecast the Soviet Union 's collapse, for which he later was awarded the U.S.National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, the intelligence community's highest honor. Formerly an associate editor of FORTUNE, he is also the author of several books.
