The Cost of the EU
If the UK were to leave the EU, there would be no net loss of jobs or trade. In addition, we would be nearly £20 billion per year better off, and possibly much more. These are the preliminary findings of a study, shortly to be published by Civitas.
Drawing largely on official sources and deploying the most cautious of assumptions, the net costs of EU membership are appraised in five areas: EU regulation, the common agricultural policy, net payments to EU institutions, the single market, and inward investment. Where independent sources suggest different figures, a range of costs is given.
