Donald Trump as president is one of the top global risks, says world analyst group

The Economist Intelligence Unit has listed the top events that could cause a global crisis, and Donald Trump being elected as the next president ranks third on the list.

The lack of a clear, concise platform and his off-handed comments about ISIS, NATO, Mexico and China could potentially hurt U.S. foreign relations.

Though the firm doesn't believe Trump will beat Hillary Clinton, it does warn about security risks and economic repercussions if he were to win.

The Economist also listed out other potential risks.

The collapse of the oil industry could spell future problems even if you are enjoying the lower gas prices. Less investment in oil industries around the world poses problems for the world economy and future energy endeavors.

The threat of terrorism could also impact the global economy. If attacks continue to escalate from groups like ISIS and Boko Haram, consumer confidence could decrease meaning global stocks could take a hit.

The repercussions from the 'Brexit' have sent the E.U. into an uncertain time. The Economist believes that the E.U. could further fracture because of growing uncertainty and the rise of insurgent parties within Europe.

While the group lists ten events as possible global risks, China experiencing a sharp economic slowdown ranks as the number one potential problem. Further economic decline in China would cause a global economic meltdown.
