"It will be most useful for students and researchers needing information on international business and trade. It will aid in business research and help them interpret their findings. It would be a useful research tool in academic libraries but libraries are encouraged to register for the publisher's free trial to see if the material and the functions of the databse are right for your clientele and reference needs."--American Reference Books Annual, 2012


"Overall, this is a good resource for both undergraduate and graduate business-school students. The site offers plenty of unique features, such as the six-item comparison, and an impressive number of graphing and data-conversion options. Case studies add extra depth. Gale Business Insights: Global is recommended to libraries serving business-school students."--Booklist, April 2012

"This is a sophisticated database with powerful search capabilities that are easy to use. The content is mostly very good, and the way in which Gale has interwoven the various pieces of information makes for a product that goes beyond simply providing stand alone collections of information - it enables researchers to see complex relationships clearly and to get fuller stories than mere data alone can convey. I give it a nine and recommend it to libraries serving undergraduate and graduate business and social science researchers."--Library Journal, November 2011
