Income disparity, extreme weather events, unemployment and underemployment, climate change and cyber-attacks are the five most likely risks facing governments and corporations around the world in 2014, according to a World Economic Forum report co-authored by LDI Senior Fellow Howard Kunreuther. The report is the subject of a Knowledge@Wharton article.

In a parallel prediction, the report identified five risks that would have the most impact in 2014: fiscal crises, climate change, water crises, unemployment and under-employment, and critical information infrastructure breakdown.
