Economist Intelligence Unit

Introduction

The stanza entries listed below provide access to EIU products and services at the following Web sites:

  • EIU.com, Viewswire, Global Forecasting Service, and the EIU Data Tool
  • Economist.com
  • Alacra Data Services
  • BvD Data Services

Add ONLY the stanza entries that match your current subscription entitlements to your config.txt/ezproxy.cfg file. 

Caution: Remove any duplicate entries. Duplicate entries cause EZproxy authentication to fail.

Select the right stanza for BvD Access

For BvD subscribers, if you have multiple products you can either:

  • Use individual stanzas for each product, which are listed below
  • Use one stanza — T EIU BvD (multiple products), which is listed below, to land at the "multiple" BvD product page where all subscriptions are shown. If you use the "multiple products" landing page at BvD, products within the subscription display with a black, clickable link, and products not subscribed that are not subscribed have non-functional gray product links. 

Caution: Select either the multiple product stanza or the individual product stanzas (but not both). Duplicate stanza entries cause EZproxy authentication to fail.

About SSL certificates for use at EIU.COM

When purchasing an SSL certificate for access to products and services at EIU.com and Viewswire, make sure that your certificate supports unlimited domains (a "wildcard" certificate), so that you navigate between the various EIU URLs -- EIU.com, data.eiu.com, viewswire.eiu.com, country.eiu.com, etc., without experiencing a loss of authentication and login prompts.

Our hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm, EST (USA)
