Top Risks For 2023

Divided States of America

The United States has remained one of the most politically polarized countries. With the growing partisan polarization of the American electorate, there is a continued eroding of the legitimacy of core federal institutions. As well as the fact that states are stepping into the void left by the national government though many states are dramatically different from each other than ever before.

  • The polarization however hasn’t caused as much of a disruption to world politics or relations, as some may have anticipated.
  • This polarized environment will however make an increasingly challenging environment for countries who consider the country as a whole.
  • There is also a continued risk of violence in the country.
