Exclusive: This year’s single biggest global risk

Eurasia Group president Ian Bremmer, giving Axios an exclusive preview of his annual Top 10 global risks, says the #1 geopolitical danger of 2019 will be the crises we ignore, «setting ourselves up for trouble down the road. Big trouble.»

Bremmer calls them «bad seeds.»

  • «The geopolitical environment is the most dangerous it’s been in decades … and at a moment when the global economy is faring well,» Bremmer and Eurasia Group chairman Cliff Kupchan
  • «The world’s decision-makersare so consumed with addressing (or failing to address) the daily crises that arise from a world without leadership that they’re allowing a broad array of future risks to germinate, with serious consequences for our collective midterm future.»

Among them: «The strength of political institutions in the US and other advanced industrial economies. The transatlantic relationship. US-China. The state of the EU. NATO. The G20. The G7. The WTO. Russia and the Kremlin. Russia and its neighbors. Regional power politics in the Middle East. Or in Asia.»

  • Why it matters:«Every single one of these is trending negatively. Every single one. And most in a way that hasn’t been in evidence since World War II.»
