With the election of Trump and the Brexit vote we will see the fate of economic nationalism in a world globalized as never before. Trump, I suspect, is perfectly aware of the need to do deals with China and others but the UK has manoeuvered itself into a corner: such deals are contingent on the UK being the gateway into the EU. That is why so much is going into a big push in 2017 to bring down the EU. Let’s hope, for all our sakes, that it fails.
