Part of being in the free trade thing was no tariffs UK exports will be more expensive and it will effect trade Worlds biggest financial places are in London, it’s a big deal for UKs economy If taxes pop up, banks and stuff can leave a place like London to Ireland (4 days people are being moved) Biggest centers of finance: London, NY, Tokyo, bejing Wont collapse the finance sector of UK but it will effect it Scotland is going to succeed (via Prof boyer) Referendum in Scotland last year barely got defeated The majority in Scotland now wants out England voted to leave, London wanted to stay, wales voted to leave, Scotland by wide margin wanted to stay, northern Ireland wanted to stay by wide margin Primary gripe of Scots are that their votes are not being heard Its really not the end of the world Donald Tusk said that if UK exited EU it would be the crash of western civilization, Boyer doesn’t think it is end of the world because unlike most EU countries, UK is not part of the Shanhan zone (free movement of people, no passports) UK does not have to build walls or anything because of the zone, and they don’t have to change currency UK was always at arms length from EU, they were also not original members EU was continental Europe experiment first and foremost UK is the least problematic country leaving, and no border issues Great fear that this is going to fuel right wing coutnries to get out of EU, but professor thinks this is ridiculous
