RES Presents 2017 (Post-Brexit Economics)

Diane Coyle (Chair) with Jagjit Chadha, Swati Dhingra, Paul Johnson and Michael McMahon. Nine months on from the referendum, Jagjit Chadha (National Institute of Economic and Social Research), Swati Dhingra (London School of Economics), Paul Johnson (Institute for Fiscal Studies) and Michael McMahon (University of Warwick) revisit the likely economic consequences of Brexit. Did economists get it wrong, or is it just a matter of time before the true economic costs become apparent? And how can economists recover their reputation? Theirs was not the decisive voice in the referendum debate and subsequent events will have done little to persuade people to listen to the experts.
