The clear and present dangers following from clock-change and the disruption of circadian rhythms include 10% increase in heart attacks; 20% decrease in work productivity; more workplace injuries; 17% increase in traffic accidents after the Spring forward; 2% lost on exams scores.

The costs to the global economy are not pro-rata but rather higher because the changes in different countries are a mad mix of arbitrary dates which make scheduling International meetings in Megacorp tiresomely difficult for about two months every year.
