Rising cyber-crimes, inequality, geopolitical tensions, economic chaos in major economies, job loss due to increasing automation, the fiscal crisis, an ageing population, and reverse globalization have been highlighted as the major risk factors in 2017. Political instability is a particular concern as recent examples in developed nations such as the US, UK, and Italy demonstrate. Voters seem to have turned away from globalization and are becoming quite hostile towards international trade leading to greater nationalism worldwide. Low interest rates in developed countries have only exacerbated their concerns. A few central banks even have very low interest rates and they have been unable to revive financial markets making it worrisome for the global economy.

Scope of the Report

On the basis of good governance, greater transparency, control of corruption, better regulatory quality, and political stability, Norway was the highest ranked country and Syria the lowest in the year 2017
Considering strong economic growth, lower debt, low inflation, easy availability of venture capital and credit, Sweden tops the list followed by the U.S, Taiwan, and Norway respectively in 2017
Finland has the lowest technological risk and it is trailed by Korea, Japan, and Singapore on the basis of the ICT landscape, internet and mobile penetration, and innovation capacity
New Zealand and Syria have the lowest and highest legal risk respectively in the year 2017 taking into account investor protection strength, legal framework efficiency, property rights, and intellectual property protection
42 of the 136 profiled nations have some sort of environmental risk in 2017. Nations such as El Salvador, the Philippines, and Costa Rica are highly prone to environmental disasters such as earthquakes and floods and are ranked at the bottom of the environmental risk factor
