Economic risk

In project financing, the risk that the project's output will not be salable at a price that will cover the project's operating and maintenance costs and its debt service requirements.

Economic Risk

The possibility that an economic downturn will negatively impact an investment. For example, launching a luxury product immediately before or during a recession carries a great deal of economic risk. Economic risk is closely related to political risk as government decisions impacting the economy may also affect an investment. For example, a central bank may raise interest rates or the legislature may raise taxes, and this may result in economic conditions impacting an investment.
