As of the time of this writing most of the votes have been counted and it appears Britain has voted to leave the European Union.

I’m personally shocked. But from a Jubilee Year 2016 perspective, a British exit from the EU holds up the possibility of maximum chaos.

We wrote this previously in our article, Brexit, There Is Much More to It Than Meets the Eye:

We look at these issues from the point of view of Jubilee 2016. As much as we would like to think [Brexit] is a straightforward sociopolitical event, we cannot. It is part of a larger story, one that involves increasing chaos as this year moves forward.

I also wrote previously:

I think the future of Europe is one that will be continually more chaotic and violent. Pro- and anti-EU forces will engage in a long-term battle that will leave not a single cultural element uncontested.

This is already starting to happen. Within an hour of the results seeming to be clear, the vote set off a worldwide shock.

The Japanese Nikkei fell more than 8% and circuit breakers kicked in to shutter trading.

Hong Kong was down 4.67% and Australia was down more than 3%.

There are hundreds and sometimes thousands of variables that must be dealt with to start-up and maintain a successful venture.  In the end, individuals must allow for some flexibility and have a realistic understanding of their market environment.  To say that business fails because of a certain economic or geographic climate is missing the heart of the matter.  Inflation, high financing costs, reduced demand, and government induced constraints are all various viruses that add to the difficulty of survival, but they are not the root cause of the death.  As with any virus, individuals must protect themselves from the possibility of contraction and take proactive measures to avoid the possibility of infection.  These proactive measures are today referred to as good management.  This is where people, individuals, and owners make or break their business.
