    Arrow structure, collocation

    Hi there,
    Could you please explain (1) the meaning of the collocations in bold; and (2) the newspaper structure/style (Is it acceptable in formal writings/correspondence? Is it OK if one ends the sentence in that way?).


    1) "However, if you look at that as the wider relative economic output - because there are concentrations of economic exposure in places like the mid-west that are not as heavily exposed to this risks - this has a balancing effect."

    2) Emerging economies in Asia, including India and the Philippines, face the greatest financial risk from natural disasters, an analysis suggests.

    #2 is absolutely fine. It's just another way of saying "An analysis suggests that emerging economies in Asia, including ..." You can't use this structure all the time (context and content are always important) but here it works.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
