The economics of Brexit


This project aimed to shed light on both the short-run economic effects of Brexit and how businesses and market participants expected Brexit to affect the UK economy in the longer term, by analysing the impact of the referendum vote on stock market prices and trade flows. The research evidenced how voting to leave the EU affected the UK economy before Brexit occured. In particular, it examined the effect of the Brexit vote on consumer price inflation, stock prices, and outward investment by UK firms.
