Vive la Revolution
2017 is a critical year for European politics not to mention the triggering of Article 50 and Trump.
It is impossible to predict how the events of 2016 might influence the future. There is certainly potential for further disruption to what we have hitherto considered normal. Other European countries may turn away from the EU in part or in full, which could bring into question the existence of the Euro and the EU itself. Economic stresses may resurface in the Eurozone – an Italian banking crisis for example. And while the US and Europe are absorbed with their own internal ideological and social struggles, China and Russia maybe free to expand their own power and influence.
