The commentary and positions on various of the Foundation are largely based upon the personal experiences of its Directors, augmented by extensive research involving a number of sources including International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), private global  forecasting organizations, and local world affairs groups. Perhaps most important is the ongoing process of extensive reading from a wide variety of books and periodical publications. A list of our current readings, as well as selected titles from The Stack, are listed below.  The Foundation always welcomes the input from its members and friends on any of the issues that confront our world today.
