From United Kingdom to Untied Kingdom

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 18 aprile 2021

The Economist this week.The Economist is a global newspaper, but occasionally we have stories that have special relevance for their region—and then we shuffle the order of our leaders, to bring different editorials to the cover slot in different editions. This is one of those rare weeks when we have no fewer than three covers. In Britain and Europe we look at how the bonds that hold the United Kingdom together are fraying. The union is now weaker than at any point in living memory. The causes are many, but Brexit is the most important. Political leaders in London, Edinburgh and Belfast have put their country at risk by the way they have managed Britain’s departure from the European Union. Boris Johnson, the prime minister, has done it carelessly, by putting party above country and espousing a hard Brexit. Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s first minister and leader of the Scottish National Party, has done it determinedly, by exploiting Scots’ dislike of the Brexit settlement. Arlene Foster, first minister of Northern Ireland and head of the Democratic Unionist Party has done it stupidly, by rejecting the softer Brexit proposed by Theresa May, Mr Johnson’s pre­decessor. If the Scots, Northern Irish or even the Welsh choose to go their own way, they should be allowed to do so—but only once it is clearly their settled will. That is by no means the case yet, and this newspaper hopes it never will be. In North America we report on the era of the political CEO. Business and politics are growing closer in America, with worrying consequences. Sometimes this is in pursuit of honourable causes, as in the protest of chief executives over new laws restricting voting in Georgia and other states. Sometimes it is visible in the statesman-CEO: the latest manifesto from Jamie Dimon, boss of JPMorgan Chase, pronounces on military procurement and criminal justice among many other weighty concerns. Most broadly of all, it is reflected in how the Business Roundtable, a lobbying group, has extended the corporate remit to include all stakeholders, for the success of firms, communities and the country. At The Economist we strongly support the protection of voting rights. We believe that companies operating in competitive markets advance social progress. Nonetheless, as classical liberals, we also believe that concentrations of power are dangerous. Businesspeople will always lobby for their own advantage and the closer they get to the government, the more harm they threaten to both the economy and politics. And in Asia we warn that Myanmar could become Asia’s next failed state. Daily protests continue and soldiers are rampaging through rebellious districts, beating and killing at random; the overall death toll has passed 700. Citizens have burned down shops tied to the army and a general strike has paralysed businesses and public services. In the borderlands some of the 20 or so armed groups that have battled the government on-and-off for decades are taking advantage of the crisis to seize military outposts or caches of weapons. A vacuum is being created in a territory bigger than France that abuts Asia’s biggest powers, China and India. It will be filled by violence and suffering. Although Myanmar is not yet as lawless as Afghanistan, it is rapidly heading in that direction. The ruin of Myanmar is not only a calamity for the 54m Burmese; it also threatens to spread chaos as drugs, disease and refugees spill over Myanmar’s borders.

regno unito exporegno unito expo1The participation at Expo Milano 2015 by the United Kingdom highlighted the testimony of how important British innovations in science, technology and supply to consumers represent a valuable contribution to address the global food challenge. Choices and food policies are related to the health and wellbeing of every individual. Specifically, the decisions taken by the industrialized nations (including the United Kingdom) regarding food can have significant consequences for the entire world population, above all on the availability of food in developing countries.
Visitors to the pavilion will have the opportunity to come into contact with the UK’s leading expertise in the creative industries of the agro-food display cases and discover the innovations introduced at every stage of the food chain. From agricultural technology to food security, from functional foods to logistics, opening global markets to international collaborations, and many other issues will be addressed.
