On June 23, Brexit, the abbreviation of the “British exit,” became a reality. Though the separation has not legally taken place yet, the referendum by British voters to exit the European Union has already had major economic effects. Fortune.com reported:
The business outlook darkened by the most in four years, according to a survey published on July 11 when there were also fresh signs of a fall in consumer spending and a slowing of economic activity in London.
Another survey, published on July 8 showed consumer morale suffered its biggest drop in more than five years after the referendum, echoing other signs of a hit to confidence since the vote.
