What do you think is the next big risk?

With the world becoming more interconnected, it's getting harder to anticipate and manage global risks.

In its "Global Risks 2014" risk assessment, the World Economic Forum has highlighted the gap between the rich and the poor following the world's financial crisis as the "most likely risk to cause an impact on a global scale in the next decade."

Among the other risk factors identified in its assessment, which canvassed the views of more than 700 global experts, extreme weather events and cyberattacks were also identified as most likely to cause systemic risk on a global scale.
