Rather than offering a solution, Brexit is posing a problem for the British economy. Shortages are up, economic activity has stalled and, while the impacts of COVID-19 play a hand in the economic downturn, so, too, does Brexit. Professor Anand Menon explores the idea that Brexit’s much-touted promise to reduce inequality may have proven apocryphal, putting at a disadvantage the very groups that overwhelmingly supported it. Followers of the ongoing Brexit saga will find Menon’s essay an insightful take on the developing situation.
