The Cost of the EU

From Civitas via the EUreferendum Blog -Background Briefing: EU Costs and Benefits

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.

Need I say more?
