European Institute event: Regional Economic Impacts of Brexit

Swati Dhingra (CEP & LSE)

Most economists expect Brexit to negatively affect the UK economy, but we know much less about the local impacts. Will Brexit exacerbate existing disparities in living standard across the UK, or might it narrow differences? In this lecture we'll consider what we know about local impacts, identify the biggest losers from changes in trade costs and consider what other factors might matter if we want to better understand the likely impact on our towns and cities. This lecture is part of the LSE Programme on Brexit. Swati Dhingra is Lecturer in Economics, Deaprtment of Economics. Henry Overman is Professor of Economic Geography, Department of Geography and Environment. Tony Travers is Director of the Institute of Public Affairs, LSE.
