The publishers of THE INFORMED OUTLOOK provide
Executive Summaries of articles at the beginning of each issue
so readers can decide up front which are of greatest interest.
This is just one of the ways we help readers better use their
time (also included are Key Points for most articles and plenty
of charts and tables). The Executive Summaries for July 2001
are reprinted below to give you an idea of the topics included
in a typical issue and the importance of topics discussed
to your company.
