  2. It is interesting to note that the global agenda of World Economic Forum 2014 focuses on the rising tensions in the Mideast and North African as a number one priority. True, the world is still dependent oil as a prime source of energy, but according National Debt of the USA has continued to increase an average of $2.59 billion per day since September 30, 2012! As of 15 January 2014, it stands at a staggering US$ 17,286, 060,869, 275.02 and rising. Perhaps some politicians or economists have cleverly coined the term ‘MENA’ to distract attention from the last priority “rapid spread of misinformation online.”
