After Brexit, What Next?

The IEA hosted a virtual public book launch for our book ‘After Brexit, What Next? Trade Regulation and Economic Growth’.

Speaking at this launch: Professor Patrick Minford (Author and IEA Trustee), Dr Stephen Davies (IEA Head of Education), and chairing this event will be Professor Syed Kamall (IEA Academic and Research Director).

As the UK reaches crunch time on its relationship with the rest of the world, This timely book sets out a shrewd and comprehensive policy programme, for both ‘microeconomic’ supply-side settings of tax and regulatory systems, and ‘macroeconomic’ policies for fiscal and monetary policies to regulate demand and support the supply-side growth agenda.

Explaining the numerous benefits of free trade after Britain’s exit from the EU, Patrick builds on his extensive research into economic modelling to quantify the effects of Brexit and propose policies for the aftermath. Laying out an agenda for replacing social interventionist EU regulation with a robust free market framework, Minford proposes a radical tax reform programme to broaden the tax base and flatten marginal rates.

This incisive book looks to the future of the UK beyond Brexit, addressing the effects of coronavirus and proposing an avenue of policies for recovery. Featuring key empirical analysis and insightful arguments, this book will be crucial reading for economists and policymakers investigating and overseeing the future of UK economic policy.

It will also benefit scholars of economics and political economy, particularly those interested in tax reform programmes Book Club Members will have exclusive access to the Zoom Webinar, and therefore be able to ask questions to our speakers.
