The lecture evaluates the economic effects of Brexit on the EU taking Frankfurt as an example, the UK and in particular Dorset. Dorset stands out as having voted pro leave well above UK average. The lecture argues that Brexit is against the interest of Dorset businesses except for the tourism sector. The overall effect on the UK is presented as negative for the economy, whereas there will e a small positive effect on the EU. Much will however depend on whether there will be a hard Brexit or transitional arrangements can be established.
