Opponents of the prospective withdrawal of the UK from the EU, aka Brexit, held a protest march in central London on 9 September that gathered tens of thousands of people. The march was one of a series of protests against Brexit scheduled for this fall. As publicity around the opposition has grown, the campaign has received the name "Autumn of Discontent". Now, according to the latest survey of CFOs from Deloitte, it seems that the discontent is spreading to the business sector.
 
Deloitte’s second quarter 2017 survey of chief financial officers (CFOs) shows that the Brexit shock that hit executive opinion in the wake of the EU referendum only eased temporarily:
  • Optimism reached an 18-month high of 14 percent during the first quarter of 2017 but has just as sharply reversed during the second quarter, with a 12-percent increase among CFOs who think that Brexit will worsen the overall business environment.

  • Financial pessimism about the effects of Brexit on CFOs' "own spending and hiring decisions" increased, adjusting upward by about 7 percent from the first quarter.
  • CFOs continue to perceive Brexit as the biggest risk for the business environment. Weak demand in the UK is also among the highest risks to businesses, according to the CFOs.
  • The preferred financial strategy for corporations for the next year is still cost reductions. An additional 3 percent of CFOs selected this approach compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.

United Kingdom general election, 2015

As a result of the surprising UK parliamentary elections, the Conservative Party has got a majority of 330 seats in the new UK Parliament*.

Only 15% of newly elected and re-elected MPs are under 40 years old (5% less than in 2010). The...

Shifting from Greek to UK Exit: What does EU membership mean to the UK?

What has EU membership meant for the UK? Could the UK economy withstand a deterioration in its link to the European economy? Have existing EU policies that some argue disproportionately favor founding EU members - read France, Germany, and Italy - been more harmful than helpful to the UK economy? It's not only the citizens and government of the UK seeking answers to these questions and many more like them but trading partners, business competitors and investors, and others with economic, political, and even military objectives in operating in a world in which the UK's status is partly defined by its EU membership.The UK today represents 8...

Shifting from Greek to UK Exit: What does EU membership mean to the UK?

Greece's economic position and performance within the EU starkly contrasts that of the United Kingdom. Using a few select indictors, including GDP, GDP growth, trade, government debt, and interest rates, among others, the visualizations clearly show why one size hardly fits all in the European Union.
