Flavio Maluf is an acclaimed executive in Brazil. He is known for being outspoken on a variety of issues, precisely those concerning economics. Last year, Flavio could not fail to analyze a historical situation that would affect the global economy, Brexit. He pointed out four implications that would be triggered by the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.
- British Economy
In this case, Flavio Maluf drew the impact from Paulo Figueiredo, the director of operations of FN Capital. Paulo asserted that the UK’s departure would result in a significant decline in the investments it receives. Further, the end of free movement of goods and people between EU member countries would trigger adverse outcomes.
- Foreign Trade in Europe and the UK
Flavio suggested that the exit from the EU would mean that the UK would institute new rates on quotas and tariffs. This would most likely affect its foreign trade with the EU negatively.
- Brazilian Imports and Exports
According to Flavio, Brazil stood a high chance of benefiting from bilateral agreements with the UK. Nonetheless, he said the benefits would be minimal since the UK is not a top trading partner of Brazil.
- European Union
The exit would mean a significant loss for the EU as most of its structures were centered around the UK, France and Germany. With France displaying weakness in its economy, it is up to Germany to support the EU economically.
