Thu 15 Mar 2018, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Top Risks 2018

While markets are soaring and the economy is not faring too poorly, citizens are divided. Governments aren’t doing much governing. The global order is unraveling. The scale of the world’s political challenges is daunting. Liberal democracies have less legitimacy than at any time since World War II, and most of their structural problems don’t appear fixable. Meantime, today’s strongest leaders show little interest in civil society or common values. Eurasia Group, a world leader in political risk analysis and consulting, sees 2018 as bringing the world closer to “geopolitical depression”, forming the backdrop of its recently published “Top Risks 2018”. Join senior advisors of Eurasia Group —  David Gordon, former Chairman, on his take on U.S. – China relations in 2018 and Enrico Letta, former prime Minister of Italy, on prospects for Europe.

The analysis presented in today's Country Reports shows that the economic recovery, together with the reforms carried out in many parts of Europe, has contributed to improving the labour market and social context in Europe. Unemployment is at a ten-year low and almost back to pre-crisis levels, investment is picking up and public finances continue to improve. The share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion has decreased to pre-crisis levels. However, remaining vulnerabilities, such as the high level of public and private debt, need to be overcome to safeguard the sustainability and inclusiveness of the current economic growth.

You, as business leaders, also have choices to make in a context of uncertainty. The UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. That is the only certainty we have at this stage. It is therefore important that all businesses analyse their exposure to the UK and are ready to adapt their logistics, supply chains and contracts. Of course, the transition period currently under negotiation would give you more time to adapt. However, certainty about the transition will only come at the end of the process, with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year.
