4.Anything else interesting in the video or with Harley and Motorcycle markets?
Trumps comments have a large impact in the motorcycle market. Think of the average person that would by a motorcycle. What comes to mind is baby boomer, gen X, or late millennial males with a “tough guy” image. It is a troupe that men buy motorcycles at the age of 40 as part of a midlife crisis. This demographic has an overlap with Trumps constituency. Therefor Trumps comments on the motorcycle market do reach much of the demographic that would by a motorcycle.
Harley Davidson is moving manufacturing jobs to Thailand to get around high tariffs. Harley claims they just moved production for foreign market vehicles and keeps domestic market production within the US. This split production makes Harley Davidson need to create independent supply chains for both its domestic and foreign production so they can use the local advantages of each production location.

Video link—Brexit re-visited
Sometimes economics is not all about the numbers. Choices can contain many more factors then just pure economic efficiency. One factor that is hard to put a number on is sovereignty. The dictionary definition of sovereignty is “the full right and power of a governing body over itself, without any interference from outside sources or bodies.” Control over one’s self has an uncountable value. Control over the self is liberty.
To work with others, sovereigns need to agree upon rules each other will follow. These rules need to be agreed upon by all involved parties to work. All parties also need to have trust that the other parties will follow the rules. These rules can be set through direct dealings or through a representative body. The EU is an example of an entity that is supposed to represent with the will of its member states in a way that will increase collaboration. Member states give up some sovereignty to join the EU for the benefits of reduced trade barriers and a universal currency in the Euro.
The UK has some objections to the EU’s power over its member states. The UK does not want free movement of people into its boarders from EU member states. The UK wants its own regulatory bodies for its goods and services. The UK does not want to pay financial contributions to the EU. The UK does not want the European court of justice to have jurisdiction within UK borders. The UK wants to have independence regarding the creation of trade policy. These demands by the UK lead to Brexit.
The EU has been having some financial problems with its member states thus weakening the stability of the Euro. Greece has been in a crisis since 2008. The EU and the International Monetary Fund have spent a total of 289 billion euros in Greek economic relief packages. With economically frail member states, being part of the EU is made less attractive.
