WASHINGTON, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The "Grexit," Syria "exploding," Russia's "Tsar" Putin increasing defence spending, China's slowing economy and changing leadership and other political risks continue to cause global insecurity. What is the importance of these events, will they continue to shake the world and why? Ask Richard Fenning.
Richard Fenning, Control Risks' CEO, will address the forthcoming International Economic Forum of the Americas Conference on Montreal on June 13, 2012, and discuss the importance of political risk as well as the shifting balances that the path to globalization leaves in its wake. Fenning will examine the possible implications of a "Grexit," the continuing role of social protest as a source of political instability and potential insecurity, Iran as the world's geopolitical flashpoint, and how supply chain shocks continue to threaten businesses.
