Russia's oil dependent economy is now expected to shrink. That could encourage even Vladimir Putin to soften his approach in order to alleviate international financial pressure or pick some fights to burnish his nationalist credentials.

another year of strong growth, around 2. 7 per cent. Scotland should enjoy its fair share of rising investment, a better outlook for exporters, continuing falls in unemployment, modest but rising real pay gains, low inflation and rising household spending. The mood will be altogether more subdued in oil boom Aberdeen. But lower oil prices, likely to average $75 a barrel over the year, will enable central banks to keep interest rates lower for longer and bring benefits for both households and businesses in the UK.
So it's not the economy that will be of primary concern in 2015. It is politics, and in particular the prospect, not just of a gridlocked Westminster parliament, but of voter unrest in the Eurozone and a potential debt collapse and financial crisis across Ukraine and Russia. Domestic problems in Scotland may come to look miniscule on this perspective by the second half of the year. But it will be Scotland and in particular the pursuit of "more powers" over Scotland's tax and spending that threatens to checkmate the UK parliament and trigger a second general election by late autumn. Overseas investors have been content to buy and hold ever greater quantities of UK debt on the blithe assumption of a two party commitment to deficit reduction. But it's delivery that counts. And a gridlocked Westminster parliament struggling to get a finance bill through the Commons could well see a sterling asset sell off, a stock market plunge and bond market instability. What would stoke the fire is the prospect of an Ed Miliba.
a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Western policies towards the Middle East will be preoccupied with the Islamic State because of the fear it will co ordinate or inspire attacks in Western countries; increased fears of terrorism will lead to attacks on civil liberties as well. Israel's elections may simply re empower hardline president Benjamin Netanyahu. With little prospect of a change in Israeli policies, European public opinion is putting pressure on governments to try to resurrect the two state solution; more parliaments may vote to recognise a Palestinian state unilaterally. China's growth is expected to slow, and to be overtaken by India. Softer Chinese growth and rising US energy production may reduce oil prices further. That would redistribute wealth away from oil producing countries, increasing the risks of social unrest in key Middle Eastern and African countries, especially Nigeria, where there are fears of Adidas Gazelle Indoor Black Collegiate Royal White
