Great article from Aditya Chakraborty about GDP and economic predictions. He quotes a graph from a speech by the Bank of England’s Andy Haldane which shows more vividly than any other the economic factors that led to the referendum vote.
Where is Britain booming? Or our much vaunted recovery? Solidly fixed in London and the South East. It’s no wonder, when economists and politicians told the rest of the country that we were fine, it rang hollow. No wonder either that people voted for change.
