I don't know, no one does at this stage. Even if we'd voted the other way it's the same principle you can't predict the future, we might have been much better off in, or worse off. I do think in the end though that business will trump politics whatever principles of the eu that might mean get overrun.
"business will trump politics " this statement would only be true if the EU was a hierarchical organisation with someone at the top taking the decisions.

Reality is that there will be 27 EU states doing the decision making and any deal can be blocked by some self-interest group like the unemployed Walloons who could care less about such things as German car exports and EU budgets.
