GeneralBrexit, the cost? Pin

UK GDP is about 1,900 billion.

Hard Brexit is predicted to, at worst, cost perhaps 2% of GDP (Charney, head of BoE)

2% of 1,900 billion is... 38 billion.

Mays deal is immediately as bad as the worst case scenario Brexit.

Mervyn King, ex head of the BoE, said there will be some adjustment, but no real disruption. No recession, so Mays deal is worse than a hard Brexit according to him.
