Julian Jessop appears on The Telegraph podcast

Julian Jessop, Chief Economist at the Institute of Economic Affairs has appeared on The Telegraph podcast to discuss the Budget in the context of Brexit.

During the podcast Julian argues that Brexit is such a big unknown that it is very difficult for the Chancellor to know what to say about it now. We have been waiting for the big day of reckoning where the economy’s supposed to slide into recession as a result of us leaving the European Union – but that hasn’t happened. Clearly there are some risks on the horizon, such as higher inflation or weaker exports or the loss of migrant labour, but all of those risks are overdone. The bigger picture suggests that over the next couple of years, the economy is going to do fine.
