In this incisive analysis of Brexit consequences, researchers Michael Emerson, Matthias Busse, Mattia Di Salvo, Daniel Gros and Jacques Pelkmans at the Center for European Policy Studies find that the negative fallout may be much more pronounced for the United Kingdom than for the 27 members left in the European Union. Projected losses for the EU27 countries, expressed as a percentage of gross domestic product, are minimal, but Britain’s costs could be ten times as great. getAbstract recommends this scholarly, thorough and relevant study to those well-versed in the intricacies of EU economics and politics.
In this summary, you will learn
- What costs Brexit could inflict on the EU27 and the United Kingdom;
- How much is at stake, in terms of foreign direct investment and trade in goods and services; and
- What alternative trade arrangements between Britain and the EU 27 might materialize.
