LSE says Brexit cost for households £850 a year - FT.com

The CEP team’s base case assumed that there would be no tariffs between the UK and Europe and Britain would have a relationship similar to Norway. Outside the EU’s customs union and free to make trade deals with third parties, Norway must still comply with EU regulations and must also prove the proportion of strictly Norwegian content in any goods exported to the EU.
These and other non tariff barriers, the study assumed, would raise trade costs so that the UK would ultimately face a quarter of the non tariff barriers in trading with the EU that the US currently faces. The researchers said this was the equivalent to a 2 per cent tariff on exports to the EU.

Donald Trump embodies how great republics meet their end - FT.com

Why has this happened? The answer is that this is how a wealthy donor class, dedicated to the aims of slashing taxes and shrinking the state, obtained the footsoldiers and voters it required.

But he has done so by partially dumping the free-market, low tax, shrunken government aims of the party establishment, to which his financially dependent rivals remain wedded. That gives him an apparently insuperable advantage. Mr Trump is no conservative, elite conservatives complain. Precisely. That is also true of the party’s base.
