Opportunity or Threat?
There can be considerable debate about what is a threat and what is an opportunity. When a company spots a new trend early and acts upon it well, then it has an opportunity. If another company does not see the same trend coming, or fails to act upon it well, then it is facing a threat. Furthermore, people with an entrepreneurial or can-do mentality view almost anything as an opportunity, while pessimistic, bureaucratic people view almost anything as a threat.

Pessimistic and bureaucratic
I think the combination of two words like pessimistic and bureaucratic speaks volume about today's trend. Bureaucratic people are equally dangerous to well conected civilized society as pessimistics are. Especially in a country like India where bureaucratic prevails like hell and get continuous support from top political leaders. This situation is very dangerous to growing society. This must vanish. The world of today demand new social as well as organisational system to make use of opportunities. Further research in this direction is paramount for sustainable growth of a society.

Opportunity or Threat?
Kazenieli William Msemo
I quite agree with Lorenzo (UK). It depends on the angle from which you are looking at the issue. A new entrant in a market is optimistic of making good business - trying to exploit an unfolding opportunity. On the other hand, this company will be considered a threat by the existing players.
