The future: neither paradise nor perdition
There were many projections before the UK referendum on the possible economic effects of staying in or leaving the European Union. Now that the political decision has been made, we may reopen the question of the effects, with no need for exaggeration or endless doom-mongering. We can ignore the miracles promised by the Brexiteers or the dire predictions of the Remainers. What counts is forecasting the next 27 months or so when the UK will stay part of the EU.
