Byron Wien, vice chairman of Blackstone Advisory Partners, has issued his list of Ten Surprises for 2015. This is the 30th year Byron has given his views on a number of economic, financial market and political surprises for the coming year.

Byron defines a “surprise” as an event that the average investor would only assign a one out of three chance of taking place but which Byron believes is “probable,” having a better than 50% likelihood of happening.
