by Elliott Morss, Morss Global Finance

Introduction

In all likelihood, Brexit is coming. What will its effects be and what countries will be injured the most? It clearly “depends.” While it is apparent that the UK would like trade linkages to remain the same, numerous Economic Union (EU) members have been piqued by Brexit and want to strip away some of the UK’s trade benefits.
