Chatter Episode 44 – Julian Jessop on What We Are Missing in Discussions About a ‘No Deal’ Brexit

Cheif Economist at the Institute for Economic Affairs (IEA), Julian Jessop, was our guest on today’s show. The IEA have been at the centre of controversy over their proposals for a ‘no deal’ Brexit, where people have accused them of being too positive with their analysis of Britain’s prospects if we fail to reach a trade agreement with the EU. We wanted to take some time to have them lay out their reasoning behind their proposals and Jullian provided some really excellent insight into why most of our conversations about a ‘no deal’ are too simplistic. We were also able to chat briefly about the cash for access allegations being made by Greenpeace and The Guardian.
