Assessing the True Cost of Brexit

U.K. could face a $140 billion hit under global trade rules after Brexit, study shows

The U.K.’s exit from the EU and adoption of World Trade Organization rules would shave 5 percent off potential economic output over 10 years, according to research by the RAND Corporation. The $140 billion hit would exceed that of the EU, which faces a potential gross domestic product reduction of 0.7 percent, or $97 billion. British GDP would also suffer even under a softer Brexit, such as a free trade agreement with the EU and a transitional deal, the analysis showed.
