Strawberries should be expensive. Their production is labour- and resource-intensive, harming for the environment (uses a large amount of water and pollutes), and they have short shelf life. At home, we used to produce several kinds of fruits (not strawberries). Their prices were pretty much proportional to the effort it took to harvest them them: a basket of raspberries was priced several times higher than a case of aronia or blackcurrants. We picked raspberries by hand (the only harvesters which existed at the time made leafy juice out of them) and used harvesters for other fruits. Anyway, I've stopped buying strawberries two seasons ago, after I've noticed that they often come from the region of Spain which is very dry - that's insane. (I don't eat raspberries either - persistent trauma of working with their harvest.)OMG, the price of strawberries will rise. No wonder Remoaners are upset.
There is no question that if you have money like J. Rees-Mogg (or perhaps P. Wilmott), none of this bullshit makes any difference whatsoever. If you want to live in Portugal, you just buy a suitable part of it, very few questions asked. With no money and merely a hope of learning how to make port, not so much. More analogies, aphorisms and/or metaphors will be supplied on demand.UBAH other people will have opportunities returned to them.Upon Brexit actually happening, a lot of people will have a lot of rights and opportunities taken away from them. Things have “turned ugly” for far smaller and less relevant reasons.
Maybe. That's a general equilibrium kind of question, but I agree that it almost certainly means less competition for most local jobs. Whether the number of jobs suitable for the locals stays high enough to make it a good trade is, I think, too hard to tell just from theoretical models and forecasts. But, in the process, you do close out a lot of opportunities (for jobs and other endeavors) that involve not staying local.Ending FOM means more job opportunities for the locals.
We're having tech companies replacing the banksters.Of course, if Brexit results in a massive scaling back of London's finance industry and all the supporting functions (from lawyers and accountants to hotels and restaurants), maybe so many qualified people will repatriate to their home towns of Leicester and Sunderland as to crush the job market for those locals who never left home.
Oh, then I can recommend mixing virtually everything you want to get rid of with mashed (e.g. next-day) potatoes and sprinkling it with freshly ground pepper.I found the only way to eat large quantities of the runner beans was to make a hummus-like thing. Beans (no pod), garlic, olive oil. I rarely use recipes!
Depends on the jobs. You'll get no locals to pick strawberries. No way. Same as in the Netherlands.Ending FOM means more job opportunities for the locals.
