Now consumers can not only talk to their friends (and do) while shopping through apps messaging, but they can also compare prices, can see the website of the competition, can read opinions about products or can directly buy that product in question in the online shop store where they are.

What will happen to the City and thousands of well-paying jobs after Brexit?

Brexit

London is the undisputed financial capital of the EU, although that may change after the Brexit. Most City workers were against the Brexit (and the population of London in general), is that, knew existed many possibilities of losing their jobs if there was Brexit.

The survival of the City as a European financial center (to give us an idea is the largest hub currency exchange in Euros in the world), it will mainly depend on two things, the first is the “passport” which allows banks of any country operating in another, the second is the movement people. Approximately 11% of the 360,000 workers in the City come from other EU countries. Freedom of movement of people allowed to bring easily qualified workers across Europe.

Suppose there is agreement

While the price of oil continues to decline and relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran reach a boiling point, North Korea launches a new nuclear bomb that installed the planet at a point of hatching. Apparently, it was not enough with a long crisis of seven years has left millions in unemployment but seeks more: finish and obliterate the entire planet.

The markets are in freefall realizing that all the fanfare of central banks was a mere sham to mask the imminent collapse. The world cannot continue as is and needs a change. However, each change administered by the financial dome is worse and so show the results: global unemployment increases and stagnation generalizes. While the World Bank says the economy will grow 2.7 percent in 2016, it seems a bitter joke when the global slowdown is at hand.
