As the debate over how to carry out Brexit intensifies, the City of London finds itself in the firing line. To some hard-line Brexiters, repeated warnings from bankers about the costs of quitting the European single market and losing passporting rights-which allow U.K.-based firms to sell financial services anywhere in the European Union-smack of special pleading.
The European Union has always had an ambivalent attitude toward free trade. The early days of the European project were characterized by tensions between those countries that believed a continent with few natural resources had no choice but to be open to the world and those that believed in a "fortress Europe" protected by high tariff walls.
Much of the Brexit debate has focused on a perceived trade-off between controls on migration and membership in the European Union's single market. If only the EU would abandon its dogmatic insistence on the free movement of people, the argument runs, then the obstacles to the U.K.
It is a mark of how Brexit has upended British politics that Irish reunification is once again a subject of political debate. Until the June referendum, this issue appeared to have been settled for at least a generation.
Emmanuel Macron is nothing if not audacious. Across Europe, mainstream politicians are being squeezed between a nativist right and radical left that are tapping into deep public anxiety about the economic, social and cultural effects of globalization. Euroskepticism everywhere is on the rise and insurgent parties are capitalizing on voter rage against current elites.
News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Costs and benefits of quitting EU customs union are anything but clear-cut So far, not so bad. The U.K. economy appears to have bounced back from its post-referendum shock sufficiently to escape a recession this year.
News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. With central banks nearly tapped out, there may be little they can do to ward off the next crisis What exactly is the market trying to say about the state of the global economy?
Choosing what is the best trading relationship with the EU depends on how the rest of the world responds to the UK demands , It is hard not to feel sympathy for British officials tasked with delivering Brexit-and indeed, Prime Minister Theresa May's promise to "make a success of it".
It is too soon to count with any certainty the immediate cost of the Brexit vote on the U.K. economy. Some indicators point to a possible recession on the horizon: New manufacturing orders, for instance showed the biggest decline in July for nearly 20 years, while business confidence has taken the steepest dive since 1974.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
