Abstract

Given the majority of economic studies produced on Brexit prior to the UK’s referendum suggested that leaving the EU would leave the country worse off, should we conclude that economists are simply out of step with the views of voters? Drawing on evidence from a new survey by the Centre for Macroeconomics, Wouter Den Haan, Ethan Ilzetzki, Martin Ellison and Michael McMahon discuss the implications of Brexit for the economics profession.
