The Trouble With Europe:Third Edition: Why the EU isn't Working, How it Can be Reformed, What Could Take its Place
This updated and expanded Third edition of Roger Bootle's critically acclaimed book includes updated material on European reform, mass migration and a major new chapter on the UK referendum and its consequences.
The EU hasnt delivered the prosperity and growth it promised; the euro has turned out to be a disaster; and the EU s share of world GDP is set to fall sharply.
Moreover, no one is clear what the EU is for, or how ever closer union can be matched with expanding borders and huge disparities of income and culture. The EU is the most important thing that stands between Europe and success.
David Cameron's renegotiation with the EU has produced nothing substantive. It now looks as though it cannot and will not willingly embrace fundamental reform.
Outside the EU, the UK could thrive, shorn of the EU's regulatory burden and free to develop close trading links with everyone a truly global Britain. Moreover, BREXIT could provide the spur for the EU either to reform or break up. The UK can lead the way to a better Europe.
