Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

### Savvy Help Needed

If you wanted to find the top companies by market capitalization, or ideally a list of companies listed by share of GDP with a market cap > X, for a given country, say Bhutan, where would you look? What sources would you use to compile that information?

$100 reward for any answer that proves valuable.

Do you have access to Bhutan-market? Ive never come around to setting myself up with a proper broker. One which doesn't charge fees and requires application for each fucking separate field I want to access.

That still leaves info on more obscure markets, and also lists that include private companies.

So more loot for the taking.

No, what interests us is ways to get your hands on lists of high national market cap companies for less open countries and private companies for open ones.

Look, the thing with ETFs is that they already reflect somebody's selection criteria. They are not comprehensive, nor seek to be. So important companies that we would like to know about could slip under the radar. For obscure countries at least, and for more open ones we really wouldn't have to resort to ETFs to find these companies anyway.
