A small confession .... the Brexit vote has overwhelmed my life today. Separate from this blog I provide a consulting service to some private clients in China and in Russia on global trends and how these trends will impact their economies. It is one of the many reasons why I do this blog .... it is a way for me to keep track of the global wars and political conflicts .... and I then use this information/intel to advise my clients on what will be the economic impacts.
In regards to Brexit .... I personally believed that Britain was going to vote to remain in the EU .... but a month ago I did prepare for my clients a report on what would be the economic impact of a Yes vote for Brexit. Not surprising .... my clients want me to update this report right now.
What this means is that for the rest of the day my focus is on preparing this report. I should be finished early this evening, by which then blogging will return to normal.
