All Economics Club members are invited to a luncheon in Sarasota, Wednesday, Feb. 21st at 12 Noon to hear about “Brexit Negotiations and Opportunities for the UK.” The speaker will be Mark Littlewood, head of the distinguished Institute for Economic Affairs, based in London. The event will be at the Hyatt Regency, and it is hosted by the Atlas Network, where I was a Trustee for many years.
The UK shocked the world in June 2016 when its citizens voted by referendum to leave the European Union (EU). Once the UK departs – which is scheduled to take place in March 2019 – the country will retake control of numerous policy areas, including trade, agriculture and a large swath of regulatory powers.
Mark will discuss the risks and opportunities of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, and how negotiations have been affected by turbulent political events since the initial vote to leave. Will the UK use Brexit to chart a new free-trading, buccaneering course outside the EU? Or might it wind up less free than would have been case had it voted to remain?
There is no charge for attending this event. However, you must contact Chelsea Schick at Atlas Network to register beforehand. You can call Chelsea at 202-449-8434 or contact her by email at Chelsea.Schick@AtlasNetwork.org. Let her know you are with the Economics Club.
