What Does Brexit Signify for the Middle East - Part 4

Saturday, October 22, 2016 10:47:37 PM America/Denver

PART 4

The recent UK referendum to leave the EU, or Brexit, as it is frequently known, represents shifting tides in many geopolitical arenas. This series is devoted to looking at the many possibilities that this could represent to the Middle East, in particular, and what it means for the stabilization of countries in that region.

Free skies agreement ends

Many of the wealthier countries in the Middle East, especially the Gulf countries of Kuwait, Bahrain, and Jordan, benefit from the free skies agreement in the European Union. London’s strategic significance as a major investment capital provided a major network of commerce that many nations from the region had been able to benefit from. Commerce increases with free movement, especially through the sky. Airlines in the gulf countries are now concerned because the UK’s exit from the EU means that this agreement will need to be renegotiated, and will certainly provide more restrictions that will suffocate business between connecting nations and London.

What Does Brexit Signify for the Middle East - Part 3

PART 3

The recent UK referendum to leave the EU, or Brexit, as it is frequently known, represents shifting tides in many geopolitical arenas. This series is devoted to looking at the many possibilities that this could represent to the Middle East, in particular, and what it means for the stabilization of countries in that region.

Continuing Islamophobia

As said before, there was a very pronounced anti-refugee sentiment behind the Brexit movement. In particular, it has been directed towards muslims who have taken refuge in London, and other parts of the UK. The peacekeeping efforts in the Middle East that have been pushed by the EU could entirely unravel if the populations of Europe continue to hate their neighbors to the south. Prolonged peace is often only possible when it is attached to the freedom of human movement, which is something that anti-refugee and anti-immigrant policies will greatly restrict. If Brexit is an indication that a broader movement against these people is bound to sweep across Europe, then the lives of millions of people from the Middle East will be thrown into question. This could greatly induce further unrest in the region.

What Does Brexit Signify for the Middle East - Part 2

Isolationist policies decrease foreign investment

The global economy is dependent upon trade deals set up by different entities. This is what allows countries to share in commerce, and has given to the rise of economic globalism. When the UK voted to exit the EU, it lost its right to any trade deals that Europe has created as a singular purchasing power (the EU was the largest entity in the world, when measured by purchasing power parity). However, due to the increasingly nationalistic tendencies of part of the population, it is likely that further actions will play into the same isolationist mentality. Since movement of commerce is often associated with movement of labor (or people), as it is in the rest of Europe (the Schengen Zone), this may hamper the ability for the UK and many Gulf countries in the Middle East, which are heavily entangled, financially, to benefit from trade agreements.

What Does Brexit Signify for the Middle East - Part 1

Saturday, October 1, 2016 10:29:47 PM America/Denver

PART 1

Earlier this year, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a referendum that was widely publicized around the world. This event has become more commonly known by its media pet name, “Brexit.” Although the full effects of brexit are still uncertain, it will definitely have a wide impact on international relations for decades. Not only does this dramatic action affect the European Union and the United Kingdom, but every major player in the global economy. However, not enough has been said about what this will mean for one region of the world that is known for its relative instability. This series will examine the effects of Brexit on the Middle East; both ones that have already happened, and are expected to occur as Article 50 is enacted...

History of the Gold Standard

Thursday, September 1, 2016 9:55:00 AM America/Denver

Closeup of gold coins

Gold is one of the oldest and most consistently used forms of currency that we have. It was used in jewelry, which was gifted and traded, by the Egyptians since 3000 BC, contributing to Egypt’s invasion and colonization of gold-rich Nubia. Square tablets of gold were used as currency in China as early as 1091 BC, but it wasn’t until 560 BC that all-gold coins were produced and put into circulation.
