Has The Fiscal Crisis Influenced Attitudes towards Brexit?
27 October 2022
One of the key aims of the EU is to promote economic prosperity by creating a large internal market within which goods can be freely exported from one country to another.
According to advocates of the EU, this gives member states access to a much larger ‘domestic’ market and makes them attractive places in which to invest. According to its critics, however, EU rules and regulations make doing business too expensive, and make it more difficult for member states to trade with large, emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil.
This section covers questions on whether voters think the EU does or does not help bring about prosperity, whether their country would be better or worse off if it were to leave the EU, what the economic relationship between the UK and the EU should be, and whether changes to the way in which the EU currently operates might make it more or less effective economically.
