The Brexit Lecture Series: Has the EU Made Us Richer? And Will Leaving Make Us Poorer?

Date/Time: Wednesday 7 December 2016, 17:30 - 19:30

Venue: Newcastle University Business School, Room 4.08

Speaker: Dr Roxana Radulescu, Lecturer in Economics

Join Dr Roxana Radulescu, Lecturer in Economics at Newcastle University Business School, as she discusses whether being members of the EU has made the UK richer and considers whether Brexit could make us poorer. Her presentation will consider: 

  • The mechanisms thorough which the EU may influence our welfare?
  • How can we capture these in data? 
  • What does the data suggest? Are we richer as a result of EU membership?
  • Reversing the process – what can we predict for a future outside the EU?
