About this book


“The UK-EU economic relationship has never been more important but also more uncertain. For anyone seeking perspective, this book is the essential guide.”
        Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee, Professor of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley

        “Brexit is an earthquake for the UK and EU. This timely book helps us understand how the economic plates will shift”
        John Van Reenen, Professor at MIT Economics Department and Sloan Management School

        “UK-EU relations were never calm but even so Brexit is a big shock. The authors of this splendid book explain how the relationship has evolved and how Brexit will change it, potentially radically.”
        André Sapir, University Professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and former Economic Advisor to the President of the European Commission.

This book brings together contributions from leading scholars around the world on the most relevant and pressing economic themes surrounding the UK-EU relationship. With contributions spanning from the UK’s accession to the bloc to the aftermath of its decision to leave, the book explores key themes in UK economic growth and EU membership, international trade, foreign direct investment, financial markets and migration.

Chapters interrogate the history of the relationship, the depth of foreign direct investment, and responses to the financial crisis. Considering both the history and future of UK and EU relations, the book is a relevant and timely volume that gives welcome context to a fast-changing relationship.
