Surveyed at the World Economic Forum, 469 experts and industry leaders created a list of top 50 global risks for 2012. The list includes very common risks, such as income disparity, terrorism and cyber attacks, but it also includes some that most people will totally neglect.
These risks are volcanic winter, militarisation of space and unprecedented geophysical destruction, among others. They way you relate to these risks is that they are factored into policy making by governments and financial institutions that lend money to us, including banks. In some way, we pay for these risks.
