Working on a major monograph or book, to be published by either The Freedonia Group or a university press. Topic is global engineering services, specifically the consultancy facet. Previous publications in this field can be found in Business Economics, 2012 and 2013. Visited national statistical bureaus in Australia, Canada, USA, as well as OECD, Eurostat, WTO and have had access to IBISWorld, Euromonitor, Marketline reports on the topic. Would welcome others' commentary or input -- and am especially seeking data on number of firms and number of employees (staff members/personnel) in major emerging markets, i.e. Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Indonesia, et al.
