Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich VWL - Finanzwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Hochschule Aschaffenburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Vereinigte Königreich hatte schon immer eine Sonderrolle in der EU. Obwohl die Briten am EU-Binnenmarkt teilnehmen, sind sie jedoch der Eurozone nie beigetreten. Trotz der andauernden Diskussionen, ob die EU mehr Vorteile oder Nachteile mit sich bringt, hätten nur wenige gedacht, dass die britische Bevölkerung einem EU-Austritt am 23. Juni zustimmt und somit von dem Recht des EU-Austritts gemäß Artikel 50 des EU-Vertrags Gebrauch macht. Die Sympathie zwischen dem Vereinigten Königreich und der EU erreichte ihren Höhepunkt mit dem Beitritt des Landes zur europäischen Union. Seitdem gibt es allerdings immer mehr eurokritische Stimmen im Land, die der Meinung sind, dass Großbritannien zu viel Verant-wortlichkeit, und somit auch Kontrolle, an die Institutionen der EU abgibt. Zudem wird bemängelt, dass der liberale Finanzsektor in London durch die EU Regeln nur behindert wird. Die ´´Association of Cambers of Commerce´´ in Großbritannien hat in einer Studie herausgearbeitet, dass im Jahr 2008 die EU-Regulierungen britische Firmen 60 Milliarden Euro gekostet haben. Später stellte sich jedoch heraus, dass diese Regulierungen, die in der Studie angebracht wurden, nur für Länder mit instabilem Finanzsektor, wie Portugal, Polen, Malta und Lettland, bestimmt waren.
Excerpt from London: And Its Government The British people are proud of the vastness and greatness of the Empire. Books galore have been written on it, poetry inspired by it, but, wonderful as it is, I doubt if it is more remark able than its capital city. In an island, at the mouth of a very ordinary river, with no great geographical advantage, crowd together seven millions of people.

*Named a Best History Book of the Month by Barnes and Noble* Three generations of English merchant adventurers-not the Pilgrims, as we have so long believed-were the earliest founders of America. Profit-not piety-was their primary motive. Some seventy years before the Mayflower sailed, a small group of English merchants formed ´´The Mysterie, Company, and Fellowship of Merchant Adventurers for the Discovery of Regions, Dominions, Islands, and Places Unknown,´´ the world´s first joint-stock company. Back then, in the mid-sixteenth century, England was a small and relatively insignificant kingdom on the periphery of Europe, and it had begun to face a daunting array of social, commercial, and political problems. Struggling with a single export-woolen cloth-the merchants were forced to seek new markets and trading partners, especially as political discord followed the straitened circumstances in which so many English people found themselves. At first they headed east, and dreamed of Cathay-China, with its silks and exotic luxuries. Eventually, they turned west, and so began a new chapter in world history. The work of reaching the New World required the very latest in navigational science as well as an extraordinary appetite for risk. As this absorbing account shows, innovation and risk-taking were at the heart of the settlement of America, as was the profit motive. Trade and business drove English interest in America, and determined what happened once their ships reached the New World. The result of extensive archival work and a bold interpretation of the historical record, New World, Inc. draws a portrait of life in London, on the Atlantic, and across the New World that offers a fresh analysis of the founding of American history. In the tradition of the best works of history that make us reconsider the past and better understand the present, Butman and Targett examine the enterprising spirit that inspired European settlement of America and established a national culture of entrepreneurship and innovation that continues to this day.
