Zero Hedge looks at post Brexit crisis management. It argues that before dawn on June 24, if an exit vote becomes clear, the EU’s top brass from Berlin to Brussels will be forced into damage control. It suggests that in echoes of the Greek debt crisis, euro-area finance ministers may hold an emergency meeting as soon as that evening. It concludes that wild swings in the pound, more aggressive interventions by the Swiss National Bank and a ratcheting up of global instability rank as likely market reactions.
