Global political instability is at all times high as reflected from the recent events in Italy, USA and UK. Voters are increasingly becoming hostile towards globalization and international trade. Prolonged period of low interest rates in major economies in the world have heightened economic concerns. Some central banks have kept the interest rates below zero. The central banks have been unsuccessful in reviving the economic activities and financial markets by keeping the interest rates at a very low level which is a worrisome sign for the global economy.
