The political economy of Brexit

In the second in a series on UK economic trends, Alex interviews two leading commenters, from north and south of the Scotland-England border, on the political economy of Brexit and the extent to which the debate is being governed by underlying economic conditions.

From Scotland, former MP George Kerevan details an economic prospectus that offers an alternative to the consensus austerity position of liberal democracies; while, from England, taxation specialist Professor Richard Murphy spells out some of the practical unintended consequences of a hard Brexit, which the Government has not taken into account.
