Others' odd outlook...

The WEF has published their own [PDF] report on 2017: the World Economic Forum is "committed to improving the state of the world, is the international organization for public-private cooperation", which is very close to a simple description of real Fascism! I admit to being a simple soul and like pictures and graphs etc so for a brief summary look at Figure 2 (image above), the table on page 4. You will see two grids that are the 'Top 5 Global Risks in Terms of Likelihood' and the 'Top 5 Global Risks in Terms of Impact' over the years. I would argue that to have NO economic or political (EU? US?) risk for 2017 is fantasy (we'll see soon enough I guess) and to have extreme weather event as as TOP in terms of likelihood and 2nd top in terms of impact is lunacy (remember, this is global impact). FFS.
