The End of the EU?

By David Johanssen

The European Union is on the verge of losing one of its largest and wealthiest members. British voters have voted in favor of “Brexit”—British exit from the EU. It’s a major blow to European political and economic integration and a huge embarrassment for British Prime Minister David Cameron, who was a “remain” advocate. One danger for the EU now is that member states like Poland, Hungary, and France could launch copycat moves and hold referendums of their own. If other crises are layered on top of Brexit, like a euro currency crisis and a worsening immigration crisis, there is a real threat of a collapse of the European Union. Will the EU unravel or perhaps unite into a German super state?
