This interesting item
showed up, via “Strategic Risk” at Dennis Dimick’s this morning.
I don’t think it fully captures the interconnectedness of everything; how health or decline in one area really brings down the robustness of the whole thing. After all, the links are crudely drawn as symmetrical and the sign of the reinforcement is not shown. It’s a bit too crude.
And, astonishingly, long term energy supplies are not well represented. Pollution is completely missing. Also, the sorts of political instability and increasing incompetence that we are now seeing in the west aren’t represented at all. And why does China merit a special bubble of her own?
But it’s a start which is a good deal better than nothing. Anyone know of a more serious effort along these lines?
