The world’s 400 richest people lost $127 billion yesterday as the global markets plunged because of the Brexit vote.
Brexit wasn’t/isn’t fundamentally about economics, but governance — the right individuals should have to decide their economy and political system. This is part of a growing global trend of individuals who are resisting centralized, non-democratic corporate control lead by unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding of transnational banks and other corporations.
Human rights should be global. Corporate globalization, however, should be resisted. That’s what NAFTA, the WTO and the TPP are all about. That’s also fundamentally what the vote to leave the EU is about.
