Trends &Forecasts.

The two links below include publications on worldwide economic and demographic trends.
I have already linked to one of the Goldman publications.
Also, the IMF has tons of interesting data, research papers and videos. However, The design of the whole website is not user friendly. But if you are patient you might find something like this. (A summary of the international financial system from 1871 to 1999)

Blogs: Bnoopy (Entrepreneurship)

Quoting the blog's author: "My name is Joe Kraus and Bnoopy is a blog about entrepreneurship -- thoughts, lessons learned, open questions. It's all stuff I'm thinking about right now in the midst of starting a new company. My background is that I was one of the founders of Excite. Then I co-founded DigitalConsumer.org and now, I've got a new project still in stealth mode."

Magazine (S+B)

Strategy+Business is a very interesting magazine published by Booz Allen Hamilton, a strategy consulting firm.
Topics range from HR to the science of complexity management [s+b34 recommended].
And, unlike HBR, you can read most of the articles online by doing a quick free registration.
