Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The German FAZ daily newspaper in August published an article about a study trying to determine the number of new jobs resulting from Brexit in Frankfurt.

The study assumed 10,000 bankers relocating to Frankfurt.
The conservative scenario "guessed" that 11,000 additional jobs would be created in Frankfurt alone and an additional 14,000 in the Rhein-Main region.
The optimistic scenario was 24,000 jobs in Frankfurt and an additional 50,000 in the region.

That of course depends on which jobs are relocated. Do the families move as well? In which time period? And so on...

Moving the jobs doesn't mean moving the people who hold the jobs.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
