The news that the United Kingdom had voted to exit the European Union came with immediate economic effects in the region. There was a drop in European stock markets by nearly 12 percent. The decision also led to the devaluation of the pound sterling that fell to the lowest level recorded since 1985. Financial expert, Flavio Maluf, holds the opinion that the departure from the EU will have lasting effects on the world’s economy.
Flavio Maluf is a Brazilian businessman and mechanical engineer who attended Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation (FAAP). He is one of Paulo Maluf’s sons. He is the current president of GrandFood, which owns 2 feed brands namely Golden and Premier Pet. He also heads Eucatex, a successful sheet metal factory that was started in 1951, that manly operates in the furniture and construction sectors.
Flavio Maluf’s Take on UK’s Exit
1. The British Economy
According to official EU financial figures released in 2014, the UK is the union’s biggest contributor having channeled over €11.3 billion through the union, and received about €6.9 billion. This caused inflationary pressure in the country’s economy. Its exit will reduce this pressure. However, it will also isolate it from other EU member states in terms of free movement of goods and people.
2. Impact on the Region’s Foreign Trade
Under the EU charter, member states are free to carry out trade without the application of quotas and tariffs on products from different countries. The exit of the UK from the European Union will expose the country to new trade rates that will negatively impact its foreign trade. However, this will also allow the UK to enter new trade agreements with countries like Brazil.
3. Consequences to Brazil’s Exports and Imports
Brazil is now free to enter new bilateral trade agreements with the United Kingdom. Currently, the UK represents a paltry 2 percent of Brazil’s exports.
4. Impact on the European Union
The exit of UK will significantly change the economic, social and political structure of the European Union. Economically, the EU is largely supported by the UK, Germany and France. With the UK gone and France facing economic woes, it will be up to Germany to sustain the EU.

SOLVY generates homework assignments for students based on certain criteria. SOLVY, which is a tool for teachers as much as it is a homework device for students, allows teachers to create, customize and administer educational exercises in an efficient and effective manner.
SOLVY is not based on multiple choice questions and answers, but utilizes real world problems that students must work through and provide not only the answer to the problem, but how they arrived at the answer. The philosophy behind SOLVY is to encourage progressive thinking and the realistic approach to a solution rather than picking from a field of pre-chosen answers.
Mr. Beltyukov is proud of Solvy and the manner it teaches students to think and build upon previous educational experiences to development solutions for problems and answers to questions. The help SOLVY provides encourages comprehensive thinking that allows students to find multiple ways to approach math problems and their ultimate solution.

One of the best ways to sell is to bring about products that are unique. This is especially true in the fashion industry. A lot of different categories of clothes have a wide variety of styles an products that allow women to choose the exact type of clothes they want. However, the same can’t be said for active wear. Almost every store and company carries the exact same type of boxy and dull fits. Don Ressler, Kate Hudson and a couple of others noticed this gap. Therefore, they have decided to do something about it. They all have gotten together and founded a new retailer called Fabletics.
Fabletics is a retailer that sales uniquely designed active wear. Don Ressler has taken the time to design something that is very unique. Ressler has also decided to make sure that there is a wide variety of clothes so that the customers can be inspired to find the right type of clothing they could wear. After all, people should be allowed room for creativity in fashion. It doesn’t matter if it is active wear. People should be allowed to look how they want to look during a workout. If anything, uniquely styled athletic clothing inspires people to put in a lot more effort into their work out.
Don Ressler, his wife, and others are very passionate about the effect that fashion has on people’s lives. When people dress in very interesting types of clothes, it could bring out many changes in their lives. Also, it could improve their feelings about themselves. While other companies and retailers try to make sales by focusing solely on the marketing of the products they got, Don Ressler and Fabletics makes sure that the products they have are not offered at any other store so that they can make sure that people will want their products.
Of course this is not to say that marketing is useless. IT is a very important part of business. In fact, without marketing, people will not know about any products. Businesses will ultimately lose money. Fabletics has the perfect balance needed with marketing and providing new products. See: https://www.linkedin.com/in/don-ressler-328b4618
According to the World Gold Council, 2016 has produced the largest continuous gain in the price of gold since the European sovereign debt crisis in 2010. Hedge fund managers are dumping healthcare and energy stocks, and they are putting that money into the precious metal market.
The price of gold is more than $1,340 an ounce, and the price of gold seems to have no ceiling, according to U.S. Money Reserve President Philip Diehl. Diehl has spent most of his career in the currency business. Diehl is well-known in Washington, but he calls Austin his home now. Diehl is in the process of revamping U.S. Money Reserve’s internal policies in order to deal with the demand for rare gold, silver, and platinum coins.
Diehl is best known for introducing the 50-state quarter program to the country while he was the director of the U.S. Mint. Canada had a similar program, and Diehl believed it was time to redesign American coins. But, as president of U.S. Money Reserve, Diehl has been concentrating on offering rare coins to investors that want to include them in their IRA portfolios. Diehl told Eric Dye on his Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s show, called Enterprise Radio that adding rare gold coins to IRA accounts is smart because gold is outperforming any other investment vehicle in the marketplace.
Rare coins have always been collectable, according to the article published by PRNewsWire.com, about Diehl and U.S. Money Reserve. Diehl said old school investors didn’t collect them to cash them in their lifetime. They wanted their grandkids and great-grandkids to enjoy the money when the coins were ready to sell at a substantial profit.
But the days of keeping rare coins for generations is over thanks to the booming gold and silver markets, according to Diehl. Investors are buying gold and silver coins from U.S. Money Reserve and placing them in an IRA account. Those investors know that the price of gold and silver is going to continue to break records over the next 20 years, and those rare coins will be worth considerably more than face value.
Philip Diehl is able to guide investors because the new motto of U.S. Money Reserve is customer satisfaction and excellent customer service. Diehl and his team at U.S. Money Reserve have spent years developing a comprehensive plan that works for clients that are willing to trust their instincts when it comes to investing in rare coins.
