To Brexit or not to Brexit… that is the question

mr-bean-brexit

Even Mr.Bean is harassed by Brexit dilemma

With three weeks to the B(rexit)-day, set for June 23rd, the picture of what outcome will most likely happens is getting clearer.

According to almost all trackers and watch indicators in fact, as the fatal date approaches, Undecided side shrinks to make “Remain in the EU” choice wealthier.

Bloomberg Brexit Tracker, with its last track, gives the Undecided to a 10% (lowest point since tracking started) and a firm 5.1% lead of the Remain party; both the rising of pound value and the corporate bond spread deflating they registered, bake the polls result indicating a Remain victory.

To the same result comes  The Financial Times that assigns a 12% to Undecided versus a 5% lead of the Remains and also Matt Singh of ncpolitics.uk , assigns a 5.7 points lead to Remain and calculate a 82.6% chance of  Remain victory.

What is , thus, the answer to the Hamletic doubt that is putting the continent on flames? To Brexit or not to Brexit… well honestly i believe the answer should be: doesn’t matter!

The UK in fact is already “essentially outside” the European Union and will furthermore be distant from the EU standard and rules,even with a Remain win, after the agreement signed few months ago by Cameroon. This is due a number of reasons:

1- UK is monetary independent: the Pound is the only European currency (along with dear oldie Swiss franc) that is baked by gold and is independent by BCE authorities, a change in monetary politics is an option that other sovereign EU countries doesn’t have.

2- Irregular migration is basically under control along with …the press news… does anybody remember Calais? Everyday disembarks like Italian and Greek ones are only a faded mirage.

3- Regular migration: even with eastern EU workers flooding the job-market seems totally under control to me; the market regulate itself beside potential visa limitations and… do you really believe somebody can live and pay a rent in London or other areas without a job being on government assistance??

4- Markets and economy: UK relies still on the Commonwealth and US rather the EU,  it already has treaties with all main EU countries and an exit from the EEA would be coped with in a matter of weeks. Also UK is the place where real tax pressure is lower and regulation lighter among EU countries.. i hardly see multinationals and corporations escape.. even to Germany where to change the address of your business you need a notary…

Thus all the Brexit issues seem a show to me, meant to detract attention from other European and World wide problems and , on the UK side, to postpone bigger internal social and political problems.

In fact whether it will be a Brexit or not… on June 24th I wouldn’t put myself in Cameroon’s shoes .

Book Review: The E-Myth Revisited

e-myth revisited

The E-Myth Revisited – Micheal E. Gerber

Pros: very clear and illuminating

Cons: “american” biased approach to business

The first step to healing is getting conscious that you are sick and, well, this book is definitely a good help to start such a recovery path. I’ve read it after the suggestion of a good friend of mine following my request for  an inspiration on how to become an entrepreneur. Or better an effective entrepreneur having suffered many failures since then.

Michael Gerber, the author,  has no need of an introduction but beside this, is really very inspiring; through the book ,that has the structure of a dialog with a client he is helping in restructuring her business, he analyzes all the critical faces of the matter both at personal and at business perspective. The outcome is something similar to an “internal travel” to discover all the weak spots that every human being has, related to the business grow path.

What made this book very fascinating to me is that every assertion of Michael seem very obvious.. but only after you read it! I mean he leads you to become conscious of what is under your nose, maybe a situation or a solution to a problem that, once that is pointed out.. it’s so obvious to you.. how could i have missed it!

Real milestones are the walkings through the entrepreneur’s personalities and the life phases of a business and , on top of that, the working-on-your rather than working-in-your business approach philosophy. Balancing the manager, the technician and the entrepreneur that is inside each of us will be the key to a revolution that will lead to re-born as an “illuminated entrepreneur”.

Hello (Contemporary) World!

Well… the die is cast! Here i am with my blog after a short nocturnal thinking but a long smoldering beneath the ashes.

I’d like to use this space to discuss, as per the blog’s header, my view of the world giving a particular focus to such sectors that i enjoy and, luckily enough, i work into. Tech & startups but also lifestyle changing solutions, inventions and politics.

Hope this will be a free-of-speech place where me and my actual and future (not still known!) friends can discuss about such new ideas, rising trends, interesting people and must have books.

So.. enjoy According to Sante!
