Britain faces one of the sternest tests of modern times—political and economic detachment from the European Union. The Brexit debate burns bright, and yet other long term economic worries remain, many of which pose serious challenges for Britain and the global economy.

This collection of pieces, previously published in Prospect, sets out some of the deep economic fault-lines that governments, in Britain and overseas, cannot ignore.

This is your chance to discover what leading writers, thinkers and economists such as Robert Gordon, Lawrence Summers and John Kay say on topics such as:

  • Why there will never be a surge in growth in developed economies to match that experienced between 1920-1970
  • How international trade can have severe unintended consequences, especially if countries compete with low-wage nations
  • Why the City relocating to the continent might not be such a bad thing
