Except that in this case the police was very happy to sell him crack at a high price in the first place and was scared that he couldn't pay the bills racked up so far if he stayed in that pond. Also, the aforementioned crack junkie was already forced to sell all of his belongings to the police officer during the first psychotic episode. Lastly, the police officer wanted his crack racket to continue so he had to make sure he was the one to rescue him instead of the...
The Market outside the UK is quite large for the Germans as well ;-) and, from my end I would miss Jaguars on the road. Having grown up with a line of Daimler double sixes spanning the 80s and 90s I would say that there was some commitment to the brand.. Anyway, that's not going to happen, worst is that they become a lot more expensive on the mainland, and germans/French and Italians likewise on the island.Btw, there are good steel plants in the UK, however the majority is...
Indeed, tnx fuuma
Unless you want to end up with the type of problems Alfa Romeo had in the 80s I would advise against using your steel mills for the car industry, and I'm only slightly exaggerating here. Otherwise, yeah you would have to leave the eu for your government to be able to nationalize or heavily subsidize it.It's a pity, but 30 years of resisting restructuring and moving toward higher quality goods have led up to this situation. From a business perspective I would say take the...
http://www.eef.org.uk/uksteel/About-the-industry/Steel-facts/Trade.htmQuite a bit of high quality variants, which will be subject to negotiation, otherwise you will have to get them from the US or Japan. Have fun negotiating with them. Meanwhile, the U.K. Produces low quality steel for Asia, already not the best market and one that will take years to renegotiate, as Asia is a bit more protectionist than Europe.. Which leaves my point to stand, the British steel industry...
My remark is about FDI, which is a business I work in. It boils down to this, no business in their right mind will invest in an economy dependent on trade when the circumstances of trade are not secure. Ask yourself, why invest millions in a business, be it greenfield, brownfield or M&A when you can't determine the margins due to the tariffs being under negotiation, FOR THE COMING YEARS. That's opportunity loss..The corus plants in the bbc article could not operate with a...
Oh, if somebody thought that it wouldn't have direct consequences: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36374598 Nobody in their right mind is going to buy these plants now, and not for another few years. Maybe the tanking of the pound will bring some relief, but most probably they will start to shut stuff down..
Now that I think of it, with Geert, trump and Johnson it looks like we're being screwed over by aliens with bad blonde hairdo's.
Touche on the markets, yet they are an indicator. All FDI has gone on full stop, and will stay that way for the coming years until the mess is sorted out. That is a direct loss, although opportunity loss is hard to measure. The fall of the pound however to me is a different matter, once they disengage from the common market there will be a lot less need for GBP, and simply drop in value.On the UK 'having' to pull the trigger I disagree. It wasn't a binding referendum and...
Meh, Cameron is not going to pull the trigger on article fifty. And I sincerely doubt that there is anyone in either labour or the tories that dares to, as the economic consequences will ensure that it is the end of their political career. This will end up in deadlock, until one of them has the feeling that there is enough buyers remorse to backtrack on this. The UK has already been 'Faraged' to the tune of some 150 billion and a 10% drop in the pound as a warning, I...
