Roubini : Geopolitical risks in the Middle East are rising

Nouriel Roubini : .....geopolitical risks in the Middle East are rising, owing to the possibility of an Israeli military response to Iran's nuclear ambitions. While the risk of armed conflict remains low, the current war of words is escalating, as is the covert war in which Israel and the US are engaged with Iran; and now Iran is lashing back with terrorist attacks against Israeli diplomats. The Islamic Republic, with its back to the wall as sanctions bite, could also react by sinking a few ships to block the Strait of Hormuz, or by unleashing its proxies in the region. - in project syndicate
