With the UK parliament set to vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan next week, RAND experts are available to discuss the possible economic implications for the UK, EU and US.
- Charles Ries, vice president, international at the RAND Corporation, was a lead author of the RAND Europe report—“After Brexit: alternate forms of Brexit and their implications for the United Kingdom, the European Union and the United States”—exploring the different trade opportunities and arrangements that could happen post-Brexit and their plausible economic effects.
- Hans Pung, RAND Europe president, leads research projects, particularly around industrial economics and security policy issues.
- Marco Hafner, senior economist and research leader at RAND Europe, was also a lead author of the “After Brexit” report.
The economic analysis shows that the UK would be economically worse-off outside of the EU under most plausible scenarios, particularly if it were to exit with no deal. The analysis of this scenario, simply applying World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, would reduce future GDP by around five per cent 10 years after Brexit, or $140 billion, compared with EU membership.
