The geopolitical environment is the most dangerous it's been in decades, and yet the global economy is faring well. Markets are taking hits and (mostly) bouncing back. The most serious geopolitical risks (a cyber confrontation with Russia, war with Iran, implosion in Europe, a true U.S.-China trade war) are more plausible than they've been, but none are particularly likely to play out in 2019. We are heading for serious longer-term trouble down the road, however. That's the first of Eurasia Group's Top 10 risks this year.
1. Bad seeds
3. Cyber-gloves off
4. European populism
5. The U.S. at home
6. The winter of our innovation
7. Coalition of the unwilling
