Based on mathematical and statistical principles, scenario analysis provides a process to estimate shifts in the value of a portfolio, based on the occurrence of different situations, referred to as scenarios, following the principles of "what if" analysis. These assessments can be used to examine the amount of risk present within a given investment as related to a variety of potential events, ranging from highly probable to highly improbable. Depending on the results of the analysis, an investor can determine if the level of risk present falls within his comfort zone.

With the Cold War over, it is said, the threat of war that has hung over Europe for more than four decades is lifting. Swords can now be beaten into ploughshares; harmony can reign among the states and peoples of Europe.
Central Europe, which long groaned under the massive forces of the two military blocs, can convert its military bases into industrial parks, playgrounds, and condominiums. Scholars of security affairs can stop their dreary quarrels over military doctrine and balance assessments, and turn their attention to finding ways to prevent global warming and preserve the ozone layer.
European leaders can contemplate how to spend peace dividends. So goes the common view. This article assesses this optimistic view by exploring in detail the consequences for Europe of an end to the Cold War.
Specifically, I examine the effects of a scenario under which the Cold War comes to a complete end. The Soviet Union withdraws all of its forces from Eastern Europe, leaving the states in that region fully independent.
NATO and the Warsaw Pact then dissolve; they may persist on paper, but each ceases to function as an alliance. An abridged version of this article appears in the Atlantic, August In essence, the Cold War we have known for almost half a century is over, and the postwar order in Europe is ended.
I argue that the prospects for major crises and war in Europe are likely to increase markedly if the Cold War ends and this scenario unfolds.
The next decades in a Europe without the superpowers would probably not be as violent as the first 45 years of this century, but would probably be substantially more prone to violence than the past 45 years. This pessimistic conclusion rests on the argument that the distribution and character of military power are the root causes of war and peace.
Specifically, the absence of war in Europe since has been a consequence of three factors: A security structure of thisSUMMARY MEMO. Strategic and Critical Materials Report on. Stockpile Requirements.
