First look at a dire warning from one of the top analysts of global trends — Ian Bremmer, president and founder of Eurasia Group, and Eurasia Group Chairman Cliff Kupchan are out this morning with their "Top Risks" report for 2018:
The big picture: "2018 doesn't feel good. Yes, markets are soaring and the economy isn't bad, but citizens are divided. Governments aren't doing much governing. And the global order is unraveling."
Why it matters: "In the 20 years since we started Eurasia Group if we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis ... it feels like 2018. Sorry Last year, we wrote that the world was entering a period of geopolitical recession. The world is now closer to geopolitical depression than to a reversion to past stability."
