Brexit - another perspective was created by blackgold
There is another consideration to think about if Britain leaves the EU...

If England votes yes to go, but Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland vote no (which they could) but get overrideen by sheer numbers of english voters, could we see Britain break up with one, two or all three of Scotland, Wales and NI electing to rejoin the EU in their own right???

These is interesting times!!!

That's an interesting thought, @blackgold.

FYI, we'll have Grant Williams (a brit himself) back on our June 30th show, and I'm sure he'll have plenty of post-mortem perspective on the Brexit vote, assuming of course that the vote isn't postponed in the wake of the Jo Cox murder, as some are now discussing.

Best,
Erik

Yeah, no kidding! Aaron and I joked off the air after taping the show (when REMAIN still seemed to be winning the day) that now we didn't have much to talk to Grant about re: Brexit. We were thinking up other topics to fill the void... Needless to say I'm pretty sure he's going to have plenty to say now...

Stay tuned...

When everything "crashed" after the LEAVE vote, I knew this was an over reaction since absolutely NOTHING had actually changed.....except for some uncertainty...but even then, it was strictly uncertainlty because of worried speculation.....literally, NOTHING had changed.

I happen to feel that even with the changes that will most certainly happen (whatever they are), they will ultimately form themselves around the optimized preferences of all involved.....does that mean things will be better....who knows, but they will be the most optimal given the situation at the moment....and one of the problems I see with the world right now is a sort of slow down and general malaise in the world economy.....NOT because there is no new problem to solve nor because all world wants and desires have been met...but basically because we have (IMHO) set-up perhaps a "deadly embrace" in economic terms.

That might be because of the balance of welfare state, people retiring (baby boom) balanced against the new capacities / productions coming on line.....it might have to to with the rigid rules and agreements in place that keep those who fail from getting out of the way and therefore allowing the resources they use (for little gain) to get into the hands of new industries which would use them more productively.......I am not sure.....but I do believe that we need a bit of a "shake-up"....yes, a world war would do that, but that might not be what anyone wants......perhaps the Brexit will offer the catalyst to break free some of the binding forces that are keeping the failing to "go under" and when they do, perhaps the resources or new innovations (think Uber vs taxies) to break free and create a NEW set of value suppliers for the world (whatever that might mean in 10 years or so)

We really need that current "bubble" to be deflated and popped......so we can move on.
