Please suggest additional links to me via e-mail.
See the UW website on international statistics.
The Academy of International Business (an interdisciplinary organization of academic specialists)
Brookings Institution international economy policy briefs
University of California, Berkeley, Institute of International Studies, links and components on "Globalization of the Transformation of the Global Economy" (this includes a link to BRIE, the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy)

his overview of models
of currency crises, including the case of Asia)
UC Atlas of Global
Inequality (data and maps on trade flows, trade dependence, and FDI)
U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, international data series
U.S. International Trade Administration site: helpful material under "trade statistics" -- incl. data on foreign countries
The home page for the Canadian government is a central reference source for government information.
The Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C. maintains a detailed website and links. Here's its site on "Trade and the Economy," which, reasonably, details aspects of Canadian-U.S. economic interaction and relations.
The National Post is a major newspapers that explicitly takes all of Canada as their market (though most Canadian papers do this). They require a paid subscription for many articles, but you should be able to access this through the UW Libraries.
The Globe and Mail is another daily with a great deal of financial and business reporting.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies has an on-going Canada Project, with a website that makes independent reports available.
International Monetary Fund; World Bank; joint IMF-WB electronic library
