Brexit: An Overview of the Manifold Effects

24.12.2020

Selected Results of WIFO Research on Economic (Dis)Integration

After long and tough negotiations, a Brexit deal has become a reality. A collection of studies provides an overview of the different effects of the UK withdrawal from the EU and its internal market. Multiple WIFO studies show the economic effects on several levels.

Many questions arise: What economic effects can be expected from 1 January 2021 onwards? How much will trade in goods and services be affected? How will prices develop? How will the research landscape and market regulation be affected?
