New Policy Insight | Post-Brexit trade and development policy

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Essential reading, for all those with an interest in the broader policy implications of key Economic issues, CEPR's Policy Insight series has been growing steadily since its inception in 2007; today we are please to announce the publication of number 88:

 

Post-Brexit trade and development policy by Richard Baldwin, Paul Collier and Anthony Venables

 

Regardless of what one may think of the decision, the British people have voted to leave the EU – a result that throws up historic challenges as well as historic opportunities. EU economic policies, after all, consisted of ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ and the EU’s trade and development policy was among the worst. Brexit, therefore, should be viewed as an important opportunity for fresh thinking.

CEPR President Richard Baldwin and his co-authors Paul Collier and Anthony Venables introduce their Policy Insight in a VoxEU Column, also published today.
