The Blitz added £4.5 billion to London’s annual economy, say experts

Yet a new study from the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP), at the London School of Economics (LSE), suggests that the capital is £4.5 billion a year better off because of the raids.

Dr Hans Koster and Dr Gerard Dericks have discovered that in areas where buildings were destroyed planning laws were relaxed which allowed the construction of larger and larger buildings, and in turn brought in higher rates.

The impact of Brexit on the UK dairy sector

Given that changes could come into force as soon as March 2019, businesses such as Arla Foods UK have been compelled to start contingency planning, analysing what effect these changes might have on its business, on its farmer owners and above all on British consumers. To give more depth to this analysis, Arla commissioned LSE Consulting to produce a report to analyse the impact of Brexit on the UK dairy sector. The key finding of the report is that without frictionless trade and unfettered access to key skilled workers after Brexit, there will be significant impacts on consumers as supply consumers as supply chain costs go up.

Dairy products could become 'luxuries' after Brexit, industry warns

 

Non-tariff barriers alone after Brexit could raise the price of dairy products in the UK, which may become “luxuries”, warned a report on Thursday. A study by the London School of Economics Consulting — commissioned by Arla Foods, the dairy co-operative behind Anchor butter and Lurpak spreads — found that delays at the border between the UK and the European Union and reduced access to key industry workers could restrict the availability of butter, yoghurts and cheeses, and cause price rises.
