This guest post on the issue of the wider global impact of Brexit is from Paul Donovan, Global Economist at UBS in London. The British referendum decision to end the country’s EU membership may seem an isolated event. Something for the UK to worry about, certainly. Something for the EU to muse over. But not, necessarily, something that Asia should be concerned about. This attitude is a mistake, in my view. The UK referendum matters because it signals trends that will shape the world economy. These trends are important for Asia and Asian investors. Leaving aside the details of EU membership, the referendum result marks a victory for “anti-politics”. This is the politics of being against something rather than for something. Anti-politics suggests “if only we get rid of this one thing, all our troubles will be over”.
