Deutsche Bank estimated the likelihood of a world war or global cataclysm :: Economy :: RBC

If the probability of occurrence of the event during the year is 2%, then the probability of this event within ten years according to the law of binomial distribution will be equal to 16.7%. The events discussed Deutsche Bank, are considered independent, so their probabilities can be folded. The likelihood that in the coming decade there is at least one of them, is 33.5%. On the horizon 20 years, the probability of such an outcome rises to 55.7%, the authors write.

Deutsche Bank borrowed estimating the probability of a pandemic, volcanic eruption and solar flares from other studies. To assess the likelihood of global war, analysts, banks have taken an arbitrary “conservative” assessment of 0.625%, or 1 to 160 annually. This estimate is lower than the implied history of the last centuries, says Deutsche Bank, which is associated with “a more interconnected and cooperative global environment” in our days, and with the moderating influence of nuclear weapons.

Effects of disasters

The eruption of a volcano categories: VEI-7 (when the volume of ash emissions exceed 100 km3) the last time occurred in 1815 (Tambora volcano in Indonesia). The victims of the cataclysm, tens of thousands of people. Researchers estimate the frequency of eruptions of such power as two cases for 1 thousand years, which Deutsche Bank considered that such an event happens once in 667 years. The eruption of VEI category-7 will jeopardize the lives of people living nearby, severely limit air transportation (the effect is about the same as at the peak of the pandemic coronavirus) and will affect the global temperature (it may decrease due to contamination of the atmosphere ashes) that is likely to affect agriculture.

The eruption of the volcano Eyyafyallayekyul

Geomagnetic storm, comparable in scale to the “Carrington event” of 1859 (named after the Amateur astronomer who observed that solar flare) that can cause serious damage to a modern infrastructure based on electronics, notes Deutsche Bank. Telecommunications will be disrupted, the payment system may stop working and GPS satellites can experience interference due to which problems face the industry, relying on precise positioning, including aviation.

Deutsche Bank also notes that global shocks rarely occur in isolation from each other: more often they interact or cause secondary effects in other areas. For example, the current pandemic has become the pretext for the escalation of tensions in relations between the US and China. The French revolution of 1789 happened after several lean years, which led to a sharp rise in food prices.

The Bank’s experts did not analyze these extreme risks, such as asteroid impact, because it is considered extremely unlikely. However, they note that in the category of impossible such an event can not deliver. In 2013, it fell to earth a large meteorite “Chelyabinsk”, in 1908, believed to have been a fall even more powerful Tunguska meteorite, and, presumably, in 1490, was recorded the strongest meteor shower in China.
