Do european union worth it?

Media and Newspaper are full of news about Brexit( Britain exit from European Union). One of the most discussed and complex questions is ”should Brexit happen?”. But instead of that question, an important one is that ”do European union worth it?”

The European Union is a political and economic union of 28 member states that are located primarily in Europe. It has an area of 4,475,757 km² and an estimated population of over 510 million. The population count of European Union is 3rd largest after China and India. Unlike NATO, its a Union formed as representing a single unit nation having different countries in it. Its objective of formation is simply complicated. Europe had been engaged in different warfares in past history, claiming to have deadliest empires and all the world wars in the past. Especially german and French had the rage of anger against each other or British having mindset of the destruction of Spanish. So to create a peaceful future of Europe, European Union was formed aiming to strengthen the ties of each and every country in Europe through trade or diplomatic ties so there can be no question of war against each other as they know that indirectly war will also affect their country if they attacked any other European country. And it seems it worked, till now there had no war among Europe and no major hate speech against each other.

Another very important reason for the Union is to be strong by itself and they don’t have to depend on countries like USA or Russia. A maximum number of European countries are dependent on the USA through NATO but EU aims to unite itself in all aspects including the military. Citizens of EU have a great advantage as being an EU citizen in the aspect of traveling or It gives freedom to live, work and retire anywhere in Europe.

Reports said that through European Union economy, countries enjoyed 12% rise in their GDP, which they may don’t had if they were not part of the union. Many anti-EU says that they may have 12% rises in their economy but that’s not much or countries economy must have rosed more if they had been on their own.  Countries less prosperous, such as Ireland, Portugal, and Spain have made significant degrees of economic development since they joined the European Union. Case studies also show that the Greece crises are also connected to EU as when Greece joined EU in 2001. The Greek economy was weak and they borrowed a lot of euros from other countries like Germany or UK.  when a country suffers from poverty or high unemployment, it prints more money which results in fall of currency but if a country has less unemployment, they print less money which results in high purchasing powers. In this case, Greece is stuck, their economy is still poor and it cant do anything as euro is the currency of European Union.Thay can’t leave EU because if a country leaves EU, they have to pay a good amount of money, which Greece can’t afford to pay right now at this moment.

Combing various countries under one currency, it itself is a planning dinner in which you have to take care of a vegetarian and a person who have allergy from some food. Status of many countries is like countries having high unemployment or a country whose economy is weak. Citizen doesn’t have much role in selecting their representative of EU as EU lacks transparency. In a normal election, people know who they are voting and what can result of it. EU has no such thing. The Commission has the authority to wield plenty of influence and power, but the average person has no say in who represents them in this way or what the quality of the representation will be. Not the only UK, but many other countries are planning to leave EU, some of them are Sweden and Portugal.

Now recent activities show that  Brexit will happen that means UK will leave EU. One of the major reasons why UK wants to leave EU is same as of Greece but in opposite way. They want to leave as they feel as their economy will do far better if they will be individual as they don’t have to support countries which are in need. The UK had been a stronghold of EU but as recent statements by leaders, BREXIT is scheduled to depart at 11pm UK time on Friday 29 March 2019. England voted for Brexit, by 53.4% to 46.6%. Wales also voted for Brexit, with Leave getting 52.5% of the vote and Remain 47.5%. Scotland and Northern Ireland both backed staying in the EU. Scotland backed Remain by 62% to 38%, while 55.8% in Northern Ireland voted Remain and 44.2% Leave.It is believed that BREXIT will affect EU a lot. Some of the things that have to be settled are New trade relationship, budget contributions and most importantly, Immigration challenge.

“The largest, proudest European nation cannot hope to shape globalisation – or even retain marginal relevance – by itself. It is only together that we have the weight to influence the big picture.”

-Jose Manuel Barroso, former EU Commision President

“So, if we do vote to leave the European Union, we risk bringing the development of the single market to a halt, we risk a loss of investors and businesses to remaining EU member states driven by discriminatory EU policies, and we risk going backwards when it comes to international trade.But the big question is whether, in the event of Brexit, we would be able to negotiate a new free trade agreement with the EU and on what terms.”

-Theresa may, Prime minister of UK

  1. As one individual German living in Denmark, I don’t foresee the great catastrophe after Brexit. The other countries had relations to Britain before the EU, and as far as war is concerned, they are still in NATO and the United Nations. I was surprised they joined at all, because large parts of the British were against it (English mostly, if I remember correctly). The one result with impact that I expect from Brexit is that Scotland will seriously strive for their independence now. They blew it last time they voted for it, but now I think it would get a majority, because the majority of Scots want to stay in the EU, as you already mentioned.
    I think there is a lot of panic propaganda in the media, because they want the English to reconsider (the English did the same kind of campaigning when the Scots wanted to vote for independence, and they succeeded to intimidate many people, hence they are still not independent, and Scottish politicians have been working for that since the 1970s) … 😉 … and they are afraid that other EU-member states might do the same. Denmark for example is quite fed up with the EU as well.

  2. Thank you for this wonderful posting. Well done! Dont forget: Since over 10 years Germany is dominating the EU, German firms had cheated german car owners to maximize their income. Also Germany has oever 15 years nothing done for digitalisation of the infrastructure. Now, since some weeks Germany/ German steel firms (well known from the history) are in cooperation with Tata, and some German groups want to get back former german territories in eastern europe. In conclusion: The USA have to fear something. 😉

  4. Siddddd! I’m sorry I had said I’d be reading your posts but I got so busy it slipped my mind.
    Alright, so let’s get to it!
    Much had been said about the BREXIT and I read a piece where they were discussing it’s impact on India. Some say that it would open better avenues for trade with Britain. Perhaps towards the end of this year, we’ll get a clear picture of the overall impact. There is much cry for reconsideration too.
    This actually added to my knowledge, Sid and you’re only 14! Please don’t be surprised, if you see me reading one article of yours everyday (because now I intend to😂☺️)
    Keep writing. When you talked about the Germany and France relations, I was taken back to my ninth grade when I read about the tension and cold wars for the first time!
    Fantastic job! Keep going. Loved your work☺️
