Brexit and the British Growth Model

Jul 23, 2018

In this new Policy Exchange paper Brexit and the British Growth Model, Dr Christopher Bickerton of Cambridge University argues that post-Brexit we need a new approach to and understanding of economic growth which moves away from a reliance on consumption. He advocates a new social settlement to mediate the relations between individuals, the state and markets.

The paper includes responses from Policy Exchange’s Director of Economics & Social Policy Warwick Lightfoot and Chief Economic Adviser Graham Gudgin and from John Mills.
