Flying fish, souse and Geopolitical Risk

Dear BFP

It’s all well and good to discuss local matters, but let us not forget that we do not live in isolation. At some stage and/or point in time, global affairs may influence local matters. We are all, essentially, citizens of the World.

From a Barbadian perspective, what should be our concerns as we view major issues in the world?

Take any of these subjects and think how the current changes will impact Barbados now and in the future…

  • oil prices
  • food prices
  • commodity prices
  • climate change

Which one, from a Barbadian perspective, is the big worry?

That said, maybe you and your readers will find this link interesting. Via The Economist website, a report by the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk (an advisory group to the World Economic Forum).
