The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union
These days we are seeing news of fuel shortages at service stations in the UK which are already starting to cause a new shortage in the chain of commodities such as food or medicine among others.

But what is happening in the UK is something that could affect the rest of Europe as well given the current interrelationship of the global economy that characterizes our time. This is something we need to think about to have answers planned.
