The topic: EU after Brexit?
Some talking points:
- With EU GDP set to fall by around 15% soon after the UK leaves, will the EU lose even more economic power in the years to come?
- With German GDP growth set to fall behind inflation (1.7%), what would be the effect of such a weaker powerhouse for the EU’s future?
- With standards of living declining among western EU nations, is it an indication that the EU is too vulnerable to neoliberal economics?
- Is a desire to be more aligned with the US among the EU’s eastern bloc countries, a sign of future breakups in the EU?
