We had been led to believe that Britain would go into economic meltdown if it voted to leave the European Union. It appeared that Britain´s economic well-being was based on being a member of the EU. But two months after the referendum and the British economy appears to be in relatively good shape. In fact, unemployment fell in July. It is early days and the negotiations haven´t even started yet, but the talk of a premature demise of the British economy appears to be have been just that - premature. There are many important challenges ahead but so far the Good Ship Great Britain is steady as she goes.
