title insurance New YorkIf you’re one of the lucky ones you sleep very well regardless of any of the things that are taking place around you!

But, if you’re more similar to those of us  who tend to worry about everything including possible flash-points around the world that might affect the slowly improving US economy, what might some of those flash-points be?

First and on a more micro level, the real estate and mortgage market in the United States, and more specifically New York, wait to see what impact the new lending rules that went into effect this month will have on the ease of getting a mortgage and by extension to sell property.

But expanding the discussion of risk to the entire world and therefore not necessarily focusing on economic issues, these are the Top 10 areas of global concern provided by the Eurasia Group with a link to a much more detailed analysis of each provided at the end.

1 – America’s troubled alliances

2 – Diverging markets

3 – The new China

4 – Iran

5 – Petrostates

6 – Strategic data

7 – Al Qaeda 2.0

8 – The Middle East’s expanding unrest

9 – The capricious Kremlin

10 – Turkey
