The Real Value of the EU for Britain is Geopolitical
In this recent analysis originally published by the European Council on Foreign Relations, Ulrich Speck examines British membership in the European Union. Due to the mounting uncertainty surrounding the common currency, which has also called the continent’s economic future into question, many in Britain are calling for an end to UK membership in the union. However, as Mr. Speck explains, the benefits of membership to the UK far exceed the purely economic arena, and leaving the union would carry a hefty geopolitical price tag.
