Global Risks 2014 Ninth Edition - -> http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_Global ... t_2014.pdf

Quote:
What Is Systemic Risk?

Systemic risk is the risk of “breakdowns in an entire system, as opposed to breakdowns in individual parts and components”.
Systemic risks are characterized by:
– modest tipping points combining indirectly to produce large failures

– risk-sharing or contagion, as one loss triggers a chain of others

– “hysteresis”, or systems being unable to recover equilibrium after a shock

With the continual improvements in mechanisation and displacement of subsistence farmers, increasing unemployment is to be expected.
