This research looks at existing research projections and concludes that they are probably understating the downside risk from Brexit.

This bottom line was recently reinforced by the Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF. She concluded that the impact of Brexit is between bad and very bad in terms of economic impact.

Supporters of the Brexit dismiss all these arguments as theory but they fail to offer alternatives in terms of evidence and risk assessment.

Ultimately, the referendum vote will be between those favoring xenophobia and those who look to economic prosperity. Logic and reason favour the Remain campaign but the Brexit campaign is now being championed by the UK’s own right wing populist (like Trump and Le Pen), namely Boris Johnson.
