With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, rising inflation, simmering geopolitical tensions, and widening ideological and cultural chasm in the United States, one could be forgiven for having a less than optimistic outlook for 2022. .
According to a recent report by the political risk consultancy Eurasia Group, apprehensions about the state of the world in the coming year are justified. The report, titled Main risks 2022, offers detailed forecasts of what it predicts will be the biggest threats to global stability, peace and prosperity in the coming year.
24/7 Wall St. reviewed the Eurasia Group report to identify the top 10 risks of 2022. The risks in this list are global in scope and cover issues related to countries, businesses, environment, health public and economic concerns.
Despite the predictable nature of the risks detailed on this list, many seem almost inevitable – the predictable results of a chain of events that began long before January 1, 2022.
Of course, many of the toughest challenges humanity has faced in recent years have caught the world largely off guard. Indeed, this list offers only the best guesses of what we face in 2022 – and which of them, if any, actually materialize remains to be seen.
