World Bank: News & Broadcast [iTunes, pdf]

From logistics to international development, the World Bank's News & Broadcast website is worth bookmarking, particularly for public policy types, international affairs scholars, and anyone with a penchant for global matters. The homepage presents a "Latest News" area, complete with icons which indicate whether there is video or audio associated with each item. Not only is it a good way to learn about the World Bank's activities, it is another way to stay on top of economic development strategies, political unrest, and foreign investment patterns. Visitors to the site can search all of the media available here, look over the World Bank's YouTube channel, and sign up for their RSS feed. Those persons looking for specific types of information can move over to the left-hand side of the page where they will find a dozen categories, including "Speeches", "Commentaries", and "Issue Briefs" >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2010.
