The aim of this chapter is to explore about what is meant by strategic intelligence in the early twenty-first century. Created during the Cold War, decision-makers intelligence needs were faced by intelligence structures focused on avoiding strategic surprises. Generate a real knowledge of the global scenario and even try its modification is a task that is now required to the intelligence agencies. Monitoring the environment without falling into the fallacy that technology can do by itself without the assistance of the policy maker who must tell them where and what to look would be a fundamental error in the construction of a new model of intelligence. This new model will have the economic intelligence as one of its key elements and it will represent the struggle between nations and global corporations at the beginning of this century.
