Flavio Maluf is the founder of Eucatex, an Eco-friendly sustainable materials producer in Brazil. During the UK’s historic vote to leave the European Union (EU), the press labeled the event, “Brexit” and there was mixed opinions on what it will mean. It seems that Britain was paying the lion’s share of EU costs, to the tune of over $12 million USD, or about € 11 billion Euros. Not only was the UK out all that money every year, they also were not collecting tariff taxes on foreign goods, a major income source for the UK before joining the EU. The UK’s increasing inflation rate became the critical factor that seems to have pushed UK citizens to make the change.
Flavio Maluf believes the UK’s return to charging those tariffs, along with the loss of their input into the EU, will result in two major problems. The first likely outcome, according to the well-educated and often correct Maluf, is that the EU experiment will now soon completely fail. The second outcome he predicted has already started to occur: many of the world’s major money markets will drop.
One quite interesting observation Flavio Maluf has made is that while this looming problem may end up affecting all of the world’s markets, it my affect Brazil the least. This is because Brazil only does about 2 percent of their annual agricultural exports to the UK. He sees Brexit as a giant mistake for Britain and the whole UK. Now that Germany must take on the greatest burden, it is unclear to Flavio Maluf how the EU will survive much longer as a workable union. The refugees from Syria and other war-torn countries are making the issue much more divisive and polarized.
Flavio Maluf entered the sustainable products industry by starting Eucatex to supply the basic materials used in the manufacture of goods and in major construction projects. He is completely devoted to a sustainable future for all building and products, to leave a greener planet to future generations. He has worked hard to building this business over the last 20 years. He has an Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from New York University. Follow Flavio on Twitter for more information @Flavio_Maluf.
