Interactive Risk Interconnection Map from WEF

In preparation to the annual meeting (Jan 27-31, 2010) in Davos the World Economic Forum published a very interesting interactive risk map. Risks (nodes) are classified by likelihood (%) and severity (billion US$) and edges represent connection strength (from low to high). The only problem with this map is it is a bi-directional graph from which it is hard to see what is impact of A to B and what is impact of B to A. I think these numbers are very important.

The most critical risk is asset price collapse which is assessed as having > 20% likelihood and over 1 trillion US$ severity.
