Brexit: the way forward

There is still huge uncertainty about the future of EU-UK relations. What will Brexit mean for politics and business, and is there any scope for flexibility in the EU’s fundamental freedoms? We gather experts from Bruegel and the Financial Times to debate the issues.

By: Date: November 8, 2016 Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

In this episode of The Sound of Economics, a panel of experts from Bruegel and the Financial Times discuss the outlook for the UK and Europe.

There is still a lot of uncertainty about the future, but some key questions are becoming clear.

  • What will be the impact of Brexit on politics and business?
  • Is the UK retracting not only from Europe, but also from globalisation?
  • How should Europe react to what is happening in the UK, and could the EU offer any flexibility on migration and ECJ jurisdiction?

This episode was recorded in conjunction with a Bruegel/Financial Times event about Brexit. Notes from this event, along with video and audio recordings, are available on the event page.

Speakers

Lionel Barber, Editor, Financial Times

James Blitz, Whitehall Editor, Financial Times

Guntram Wolff, Director, Bruegel

Maria Demertzis, Research Fellow, Bruegel

Policy Brief

Rethinking the European Union’s post-Brexit budget priorities

There will be a €94 billion Brexit-related hole in the EU budget for 2021-27 if business continues as before and the United Kingdom does not contribute. The authors show that freezing agriculture and cohesion spending in real terms would fill the hole, but new priorities would then need to be funded by an increase in the percent of GNI contribution.
