Nicholas Crafts will discuss the research on Britain’s gains and losses from EU membership since 1973. He will consider how Britain’s options are affected by changes in the outside world – in other words, the world that Britain would rejoin on Brexit – since that time.
Dennis Novy will discuss what we know about trade costs and what we can guess about alternative trade agreements that might be available to Britain in the event of Brexit.
The session will include a Q&A. We would be delighted if you could join us.
