I think that's true as long as the dollar doesn't get too strong against the tanking currencies. Otherwise, we could end up like the Japanese market.

what the fuck?

i know she's bound to stay out of politics but i'm kinda surprised she hasn't at least expressed an opinion either way about things that affect the foreign policy and stability of her kingdom like this.

I look forward to the pending global economic collapse and fully welcome a Mad Max land of awesome cars and leather as we all will scour the wastelands for fuel. Sure beats working at an office.

Come on, The Queen waited how long to make a statement on matters of national importance like Princess Di dying, and you expect her to make a statement about a tiny little thing like Brexit on the day it happens?

In Vlad's defence, Lizzy has been in charge so damn long it feels like there've been at least two of her.

“Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!”

Your Republican nominee for President.

Brexit

Megan McCardle's commentary is on-point in many ways. (I'm a fan of hers in general, though I rarely agree with her completely.)

http://www.bloomberg.com/view/articl...ce-thought-but

"In many ways, members of the global professional class have started to identify more with each other than they have with the fellow residents of their own countries. Witness the emotional meltdown many American journalists have been having over Brexit.

...


A lot of my professional colleagues seemed to, and the dominant tone framed this as a blow against the enlightened “us” and the beautiful world we are building, struck by a plague of morlocks who had crawled out of their hellish subterranean world to attack our impending utopia.

...

But there’s a reason that the 19th century architects of superstates (now known simply as “states”) spent so much time and effort nurturing national identity in the breasts of their populace. Surrendering traditional powers and liberties to a distant state is a lot easier if you think of that state as run by “people like me,” not “strangers from another place,” and particularly if that surrender is done in the name of empowering “people who are like me” in our collective dealings with other, farther “strangers who aren’t.”

...

The EU never did this work. When asked "Where are you from?" almost no one would answer "Europe," because after 50 years of assiduous labor by the eurocrats, Europe remains a continent, not an identity. As Matthew Yglesias points out, an EU-wide soccer team would be invincible -- but who would root for it?

Elites missed this because they're the exception -- the one group that has a transnational identity. And in fact the arguments for the EU look a lot like the old arguments for national states: a project that will empower people like us against the scary people who aren’t."
