Global Risk

View Slide Presentation

The world is changing rapidly - that's the only constant. What's different about how it's changing now? Europe is still mired in a debt crisis and economic slump. But the worst didn't happen and the euro zone is intact. China did slow down, but avoided the hard landing that many feared. And while the U.S. still faces mountains of debt, the economy is growing again and companies are hiring. On the other hand, North Korea threatened a nuclear attack on the U.S. and fired shells into the ocean near South Korea. A bloody civil war persists in Syria, while Egypt and much of the Arab world lurch to (and from) democracy. All the while, fears of energy scarcity are being replaced by visions of abundance. This panel will examine this new world and the tensions that keep policymakers up at night.
