Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Seems to me there are several relevant time scales, regardless of the agreement status.

  • 1 January, chaos at the ports, no immediate economic effects
  • End of January, manufacturing problems due to delivery delays
  • A few months later, stability, with obviously unsatisfactory long-term conditions

The question is when the grocery stores are going to display significant shortfalls. Here in the US we recently went without paper products for a couple of months due entirely to hoarding.
