Exit Brexit

23 Jul

The slow movement towards dis-unification of the EU has recently hit a number of snags, with a shakeup in Prime Minister May’s government as well as some questions regarding Irish border issues. The attached NY Times article however highlights the massive impediments that will be reimposed as the free flow of goods within the U.K. and the European continent cease(in less than one years time). Articles like this point out that it was highly likely that the only thing that Brexit voters wanted held up at the border was people, and that the long-term sclerotic effects on the U.K. economy were at best minimized, and at worst, not even considered. Those bashing the “globalists” in this country would be well served to take notice, as tariffs (both hard and soft) may prove not only to not be the panacea they promise, but in fact may prove to make the situation infinitely worse.
