Let's say you are building a sales tax calculation system. Before you had a chance to complete it, imagine the taxing authority decided to restructure their taxing policies. Then, your work might become useless.
I would imagine change of government policies, change of direction by the company's management to fall under political risks.
I believe Fowler mentions 4 or 5 different types of risks in his UML distilled book.

FYI, it isn't just a theoretical issue. In some areas of work this is a continual problem. H/R systems, for example, face constant change because of alterations in federal and state regulations across a whole host of agencies, plus internal changes due to labour contracts, benefits alterations, litigation, etc.
