The aspirations involved in Brexit are far-reaching and complex, and any measures to gauge the initiative’s success or failure must have broad acceptance across British society. This succinct socioeconomic blueprint from researchers Anand Menon, Angus Armstrong, Catherine Barnard, Iain Begg and Jonathan Portes poses the questions that Brexit needs to satisfy and tackles the intricacies of outcome evaluation for the United Kingdom. The authors provide a framework for four tests covering the objectives of economic openness and performance, quality of life, and democracy. getAbstract recommends this cogently written report not only to British citizens and policy makers but also to economists, policy analysts and global denizens of all stripes.
