Global Insight History
Global Insight was created with the purpose of combining the two leading economic and financial forecasting companies in the world - DRI (formerly Data Resources Inc.) and WEFA (formerly Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates) - to form the world's preeminent company in its field, operating as DRI•WEFA. Now that all client products and services have been fully integrated, the company has changed its name to Global Insight on October 28, 2002.
