Risks in focus

This year's report explores a set of risks that share a potential for wider systemic impact and are strongly linked to a number of significant, long-term trends. First, there are those which feature highly on the Global Risks Landscape and which predated the recession but have been exacerbated by its impact through greater resources constraints or short-term thinking.
These include:
• Fiscal crises and the social and political implications of high unemployment
• Underinvestment in infrastructure, both new and existing, and its consequences for growth, resource scarcity and climate change adaptation
• Chronic diseases and their impact on both advanced economies and developing countries.

The report also notes how concerns over further asset bubbles remain strong, as indicated by the Global Risk Network Partner's assessment for the Global Risks Landscape.
