A chronic gap between rich and poor is yawning wider, posing the biggest single risk to the world in 2014, even as economies in many countries start to recover, the World Economic Forum said Thursday.Its annual assessment of global dangers, which will set the scene for its meeting in Davos next week, concludes that income disparity and social unrest are the issues most likely to have a big impact on the world economy in the next decade.The 60-page "Global Risks 2014" report analyses 31 global risks for the next 10 years and comes ahead of the WEF's annual meeting from Jan. 22 to 25 in the Swiss ski resort of Davos where the rich and powerful will ponder the planet's future.
