John Kay is one of Britain’s leading economists. In this podcast he discusses the economic factors which he thinks have driven the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, the likely financial outcomes for both the UK and the EU (once the only rational deal has been brokered) – and where that leaves both sides in the short and long term. With politics in flux, businesses in doubt and economies potentially in trouble, can the political landscape in Westminster or Brussels survive? And, of course, what does it all mean for the euro? The second interview in our special Brexit series. Tomorrow: West Coast money manager Ken Fisher offers a transatlantic perspective.
