Weekly Economics Podcast: Lexit vs Remain and Reform

Latest episode of our award winning podcast – subscribe on iTunes!

The Christmas decorations are well and truly down, we’re back at work, and… It’s time to talk about Brexit again.

With a vote on the Prime Minister’s deal imminent, what are the options? Paul Mason recently described Lexit – the leftwing case for Brexit – as a political fantasy, but is there still a progressive case for leaving the EU? Was there ever one? Or is our best chance to stay in the EU and reform it? Can it even be reformed?

We wanted to get to the bottom of all this, so on this week’s podcast are Grace Blakeley and Laurie Macfarlane, two economists who share the same values but have come to very different positions about Lexit.
