Europe’s BREXIT drama is fast moving to a new climax, threatening to sow chaos for businesses just as a large part of the European continent is headed to recession.
A disorderly exit is a worst-case scenario that both sides have been trying to avoid since the BREXIT vote 3 years ago, and many experts now see it as the likely outcome.
Economists Thursday described a nightmarish setting for companies: new tariffs overnight on trade between Britain and the other 27 EU countries, border checks for people and commerce, the sudden loss of business licenses, and countless other regulatory problems.
This all would play out at a time when the European economy is already taking a mighty hit from uncertainty over the US-China trade dispute, with powerhouse Germany fast sliding into recession.
