Dr. Irene Finel-Honigman of Columbia University talks with Dee Smith of the Strategic Insights Group about the potential consequences of political fracturing in Europe. Finel-Honigman uses a historical lens and identifies the difference between perception and reality as major factors in Europe's political and economic troubles. This clip is excerpted from a video published on Real Vision on June 13, 2019 entitled, "The Combustibility of Brexit."

      Hear, hear. I think this ought to be one of the core guiding principles of all RV content if it isn't already: "Mainly doers with capital on the line." (Or at least who have directly managed significant amounts of capital for a significant period of time in the past.)

    Interesting, psychology and emotion is feeling material for the disenfranchised. Would it be cruel to move capital into the private prison industry?

    Sometimes you just must do the deed and pick up the pieces. Otherwise the deed is never done! It is obvious that the EEC will call Boris's bluff. The only way to win his bluff is to really believe that a hard Brexit is better than an ad nauseum Brexit with huge payments to the EEC forever. Just get Brexit over one way or the other. DLS
