    The World Economic Forum (WEF) has published their Global Risks report 2017, analyzing input from ~750 experts on the likelihood and impact of 30 prevalent global risks over a 10-year timeframe.

    Market Edge has used one of our core strategic marketing tools to map those drivers into a Risk Landscape for the global economy. This is similar to the Risk Landscapes we share on client programs (Challenges, Horizons, ACE, MAE, etc.) for your specific markets.
