Benzinga – by Bibhu Pattnaik, Benzinga Staff Writer.

As 2024 unfolds, the stock market is witnessing a significant rally, propelled by substantial gains in Nvidia Corp.‘s (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock. This surge is part of a broader Big Tech rally that has captivated investors worldwide.

Despite the bullish trend, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers voiced concerns at the FII Priority summit on Thursday in Miami, suggesting that the market may be overlooking potential political and social upheavals.

Summers, in conversation with former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, warned of a future marked by uncertainty and the possibility of disorder and chaos. He believes these risks are not adequately reflected in the current market valuations.

Highlighting the rise of populist policies that encourage protectionism and restrict free movement, Summers pointed out these as “very real risks” that the markets seem to be underestimating.

“The world is potentially headed into a period where there is less of a sense of what the order is going to be and therefore more risk of disorder, chaos, and associated suffering,” Summers said.

“I’m not sure that kind of risk is fully priced into markets,” he added.

His comments echo the sentiments of other financial leaders who have also expressed concerns over the geopolitical landscape’s impact on the economy.

Figures like JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon, Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio, and BlackRock’s Larry Fink have all noted the economic and financial implications of ongoing conflicts such as those in Ukraine and Gaza.

With the world facing unprecedented geopolitical tension, the consensus among these leaders suggests a cautious approach to the seemingly unstoppable market rally, hinting at the need for investors to consider the broader implications of current global events.
