Importance of economics in the current Brexit environment

We are connected with economics all the time, even if we don’t realise it. When we think of which cereals to choose for our breakfast or when we make decisions about where to spend our holidays, or simply when we decide between going out for a meal or staying at home, the rationale behind those thoughts is related to economics. Do we have enough ‘income’ for a holiday abroad or will a modest camping week have to do? Can we go for the fanciest cereals or can we only afford the basic supermarket brand?
