10 Truths about Brexit - and reality about Impact of a Hard Brexit on manufacturing and trade, including what would actually happen about the Irish / UK border

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Many of my previous predictions have turned out to be correct as of September 2018: for example no immediate economic meltdown, fall in currency leads to rise in exports and so on.  

Here is a common sense view of what is likely to happen in the event that the EU and UK fail to achieve an agreement before the UK leaves the EU.  

1. The pound will fall further against the Euro

This will make all exports of goods and services even more affordable for other nations to buy, and will make imports even more expensive.  If the pound falls a further 10% post Brexit, then the total fall since the vote to leave will be 25%.

2. EU import taxes will be almost irrelevant to UK exports

Let us take an average tax of 5% on any UK goods imported into the EU from the UK, and the other way round.  How much impact would that actually have when you take the new exchange rate into account?

British goods will be net 20% cheaper for French or German people to buy than before.  That's huge by any measure.

French and German goods will be net 30% more expensive for British people to buy.  Even more significant.

Net impact: far greater on companies exporting to the UK.  In any case, the rest of the world takes more UK goods than the EU, and the EU is rapidly falling as an export destination.

Turn Green into Gold - Sustainable Business - how innovations in manufacturing and energy production are saving resources, and protecting our future

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

More than $40 trillion will be spent over the next 30 years as nations adapt to climate change and other environmental concerns. The future will be driven not by technology or innovation but by emotion – by the choices of ordinary men and women and the passion they feel about these things. They are already influencing companies and governments, who are changing at astonishing speed. Just 3 years ago it was hard to find a national leader who was talking about climate change. No it is hard to find one that does not. That’s today. Expect more tomorrow. So how can CIOs, software and hardware integrators, system analysts and others help turn Green into Gold?
