Separating the UK Egg From the EU Omelette

July 4th, 2016

Episode 560 of 643 episodes

As the UK says it plans to cut corporation tax ahead of Brexit, we ask George Magnus, independent economist and external senior adviser to UBS and other financial institutions, what the priorities are for the British economy ahead of its expected departure from the European Union. Also, are there parallels between Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump in the US? We hear the views of Tyler Cowen, professor of economics at George Mason University, and Ann Pettifor, director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics and an advisor to the UK's opposition Labour party. Plus, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times on the nature of power. (Picture: Protesters in London against the EU referendum result hold umbrellas; Credit: Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images)
