The UK is currently the second-largest economy in the European Union. Its GDP equals that of the 19 smallest EU member states combined. Brexit, therefore, will trigger economic aftershocks across Europe and prompt profound changes in business and society. But is there still time to come up with a last-minute offer to keep Britain from leaving? A win-win solution for the EU and Britain that would allow space to reconsider? Renowned German economist Hans-Werner Sinn thinks there could be. And it’s all to do with re-costing the migration model. Public lecture at Cambridge Judge Business School on 4 March 2019 by Hans-Werner Sinn, Professor Emeritus at the Ifo Institute and the University of Munich, Germany. Chaired by Professor Christoph Loch, Director of Cambridge Judge Business School, UK.
