As I'm sure you all know Britain voted to leave the European Union and it created a lot of uncertainty for the country. Where there is uncertainty there is a lot of risk, which is not good for the country. Foreign investors, trade, and business in general have all been disrupted due to the
"divorce."  Nonetheless, to mitigate an economic collapse, the United Kingdom needs to have a smooth transition and secure a mutually beneficial deal with the European Union. The current deal proposed would boost the economy to 2% versus 1.3% currently, and both the pound and euro would benefit. "The deal includes a transition period during which most trading rules for companies in Britain will remain the same. A joint declaration published Wednesday said that agreement had been reached on a close relationship on trade in financial services, and broad cooperation on transportation and energy."
