You assume that it is possible for people to realise things are going badly close to the March 2019 date, and panic then. In fact, 18 months is not too long a time for business planning, and we're already past that point. If "No sufficient progress" remains the situation this December, businesses will start executing contingency plans for a no-deal brexit. BY the end of March the entire UK economy will be gearing for autarchy whatever the politicians say.
