Peter Koenig an economist and geopolitical analyst believes that the EU and its currency, the Euro are doomed to collapse. It’s just a question of time. George Soros chairman of Soros Fund Management and a pioneer of the hedge-fund industry feels that the post- Brexit turmoil has highlighted for people in Britain just what they stand to lose by leaving the EU. If this sentiment spreads to the rest of Europe, what seemed like the inevitable disintegration of the EU could be instead creating positive momentum for a stronger and better Europe.
