Abstract

The UK will soon vote on whether to end its 43-year membership in the European Union. Opinion polls suggest the vote is too close to call, with the “stay” and “leave” side switching leads on a regular basis, and this uncertainty is reflected in swings in the stock market, explains Nicholas Bloom. Using data from the Economic Policy Uncertainty Index, he explains why the uncertainty could be having a material negative impact on the UK’s economic performance.
