"Britain Leave EU? Hah! Might's well say Leicester will win the Prem!" 'Markets Plummet!' It was a REFERENDUM, YOU IDIOTS! In case you had the idea that Wall St investors were pretty smart*, look at the market reacting to Brexit. Obviously, stupidity knows no Inside Info. They're just as Dumb as they consider those who support Trump. *Lemme say some will make lots of money selling short against those doom and gloomers. Gonna be interesting in next few years. Immediate effects are that Scots will start gathering support for another separation vote. They'd rather stay with a more luscious teat. Pains me to say that of my cousins but true. - The Brits voted leave not so much against Germany, or even France, but more against Greece and Spain, but mainly to stop erosion of the British Community by a foreign culture. And as much as the blokes grumbled about Poles and other eastern immigrants, they knew those guys would become Brits if they stayed. And especially, for those who considered the consequences, against the idea of Turkey joining EU. - Trade? Look for a strong effort to strengthen Commonwealth ties into a trading bloc. Wont be easy and may not happen due to Progressive votes, esp in Australia. US included? Could be but THEN you'll see what lengths the EU will go to protecting their turf - France will do whatever they can to keep EU together but there is gonna be more leave pressure in the future. Immediately, the Dutch but notably German Grass Roots are gonna push to stop supporting the economically weak countries like Greece. But that's a race to the bottom, can Germany save their economy from their own disastrous 'Climate Change' policies in time to make their influence consequential?
