Brexit? That missed long-term opportunity…

Brexit? That missed long-term opportunity…

Suppose for a while that the UK would not have taken the route of a referendum to part with the European Union; how do you think this Country would have found itself in 7-10 years’ time vis-à-vis to the EU? Well, oddly enough it would have found itself – or very close to – the […]Read More

Some alternative BREXIT thoughts and why Italy could be next.

The last few weeks entertainment have taught me that there are decades when nothing happens in the world and weeks where decades happen.
