Is it best to cringe and hope blindly that not too much bad will happen or to try to pick out possible mishaps/catastrophes? The first thing on my mind is a possible collapse of the stock market as it has gone up a lot and does anyone really have confidence in the new Administration to pursue policies that are good for the global economy in the medium (even short?) term? The geo political outlook seems particularly uncertain even without this change of administration in the USA . Alliances seem to be up for grabs and some kind of a game of musical chairs between Europe, USA,Russia ,China and the rest which could be badly mismanaged in the best of scenarios. Is the power of West and democracy in general in decline now? Edit: I am not forgetting climate change but hopefully the USA can be bypassed whilst the monkeys are behind the till.
