Moving more towards risk analysis rather than risk reporting….

Also for the sake of transparency, who is taking these risks you describe? Global economy is rather vague… be more specific from what perspective you see things. What can be described as a risk for a political segment can be an opportunity for another segment.

(Yes, I’m still crowing “habeas corpus” despite the larger body of opinion.)

The truth is that any post-911 era could be said to have some reality to it is that it never neatly concluded in an imaginary decade. That’s foolish. If there’s a “post 9/Era” at all it’s that it continues from that original date itself whose beginnings were most clearly made evident by the immense US military aggression that continues unabated and whose many, possibly incomprehensibly numerous, consequences have continued and will continue since the original “9/11″ date.

As a discrete “era” I can see no reality at all to an imaginary decade that we’ve somehow moved beyond while I’m aware of our curious need to create fictional time markers.
