This is another in our FREE series of Global Threat Updates.
With wars raging in Ukraine (Europe) and Israel/Gaza (the Middle East), and with ongoing attacks in the Red Sea threatening one of the world’s busiest waterways and critical maritime chokepoints, the world has become a very uncertain and dangerous place. Terrorism has also begun to surge, and in some unexpected ways and places. On top of that, wars in East Africa have left tens of thousands of people dead, millions displaced and more than that suffering, to include the growing threat from war induced famines. Meanwhile, in our own Western Hemisphere, paramilitary gangs have taken on the government of Ecuador, and Venezuela has threatened to invade Guyana and initiate military action against the British Navy in a possible conflict that sounds like a Hollywood screenplay. To the east, China continues to threaten Taiwan and confront the Philippines at sea, and this in an area where most international trade flows. Global supply chains have become more and more unsure, and all of this as our attention is diverted to another contentious U.S. Presidential election season. At times, it can seem like too much to fully assess, but Hal Kempfer will try to unpack this “world of wars” and confluence of conflicts to make sense of what is happening and what it means to our markets, economy, society and how we continue to do business in the age of globalization.
