Alternative Brexit Economic Analysis

This Alternative Brexit Economic Analysis (ABEA), flatly rejects Whitehall’s pessimism, leaked to the news website Buzzfeed earlier in February 2018.

The ABEA predicts that leaving the EU will boost the country’s economy by 2-4 per cent, in contrast with the Whitehall forecasts of up to an 8 per cent hit to gross domestic product.

This report has been produced by four leading independent economists, all with a strong successful track record in economic forecasting: Roger Bootle (Economists for Free Trade), Gerard Lyons (City economist), Professor Patrick Minford (Cardiff University and Chair of Economists for Free Trade), and Julian Jessop (Chief Economist at the Institute of Economic Affairs).
