The German View of Brexit

June 22nd, 2016

Episode 553 of 836 episodes

We hear from Berlin one day ahead of Britain's Brexit referendum. What would a British exit from the EU mean for Germans and the region's largest economy? We hear from Dr Alexander Gauland, the head of the AfD group in the Brandenburg state parliament, Jürgen Hardt, an MP from the CDU, Markus Kerber, the head of the influential BDI which represents German industry and Nicolai von Ondarza is from the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. Also in the programme, we talk from Professor Richard Thaler, author of a new book: "Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioural Economics". He's these days a celebrity academic, a friend to Presidents, and he's also one of the stars of an Oscar-winning movie - now, not too many economists can say that, can they?
