BREXIT and Beyond: How UK can upset the global economy

This was for the Grand Rapids, MI Economics Club

In a vote that shocked the world, the UK voted to exit the European Union and disrupted the trend towards global integration. Quickly, these dominoes fell: UK PM David Cameron resigned, global stock markets swooned, and UK real estate prices fell the most in 7 years.
Will this continue? When will Article 50 be triggered and will Prime Minister Theresa May be forced into a "hard Brexit"? Will other countries vote to the leave the EU? How will this impact the US and the global economy?

"We are not only each other's largest investors in each of our countries, one to the other, but the fact is that every day almost one million people go to work in America for British companies that are in the United States, just as more than one million people go to work here in Great Britain for American companies that are here. So we are enormously tied together, obviously. And we are committed to making both the U.S.-UK and the U.S.-EU relationships even stronger drivers of our prosperity." US Secretary of State John Kerry

If we were not in Europe, I think there would be firms and companies who would be looking to say, do they need to develop a mainland Europe presence rather than a UK presence? So I think there are definite benefits for us in economic terms.' PM Theresa May 1mth b4 vote

We will invoke Article 50 no later than the end of March next year. It is not up to the House of Commons to invoke Article 50, and it is not up to the House of Lords. It is up to the government to trigger Article 50 and the government alone.”
