Synopsis of Chapter 2
Secret World of Government Intelligence

The shield of Market Intelligence includes all the areas of Intelligence, Military Intelligence, Economic Intelligence, Political Intelligence, and Business Intelligence. They are separate but joined together by the glue of Market Intelligence.

To comprehend the expanse of Market Intelligence, imagine the infinity end of time or space. The concept of market Intelligence is complete and envelopes around all that is possible. Whether it is recognized or to what extent depends on the system and those who govern with authority. To admit, then to embrace, is to contain. Its acceptance depends on its reception.

The health of intelligence is based on fit. The balance achieved between its objectivity and subjectivity. The intelligence constructionist gives intelligence meaning. There is no one universal model.

What it means – The idea of Market Intelligence is the art and science of learning about what is important that effects change and outcome.
