Cause for concern?: the top 10 risks to the global economy

Although the global economy is projected to remain strong in 2018, a new report by Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) estimates high levels of risks that either come from smaller regional hotspots, or are global in nature. “With favourable economic picture appears to come from a completely different world to the one where headlines are dominated by protectionist rhetoric, major territorial disputes, terrorism, surging cyber-crime and even the threat of nuclear war,” says EIU. In its recent report titled Top Ten Risks to the Global Economy, EIU says the global economy has seen periods of high risk before, with threats emanating from the regional and the national level, as well as from state and non-state actors.
