Re: In or out?

Vote Again on Brexit I don't think that a second referendum is a good idea, and it may not even be possible in the time available. The article acknowledges that any such vote may be for Leave, and this is a real possibility - so what then? Even if it went against Leave, the margin is very unlikely ...

What might have been more interesting wou...

If you are trying to judge his view of the Policy Exchange article on the basis of ad hominem considerations like qualifications then I think that Ian is in better company than are his opponents; few economists take their rosy view of abstract economics applied to real world problems like Brexit.
