Experts Available to Discuss Economic Implications of Brexit

January 11, 2019

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.

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.
