Abstract

The people have spoken and Brexit appears unstoppable. But, we are still faced with an intractable problem: can political sovereignty ever be reconciled with global trade? This paper investigates the impetus for Brexit with an eye to the underlying problem of economic self-determination. It asks the simple question of whether political control can be established within a global economy and hints at the costs of failing to do so.

Keywords: Order, Security, Cosmopolitanism, Nationalism.
