11 I. How Brexit came about Reflections on the vote, June 23 politically very divisive vote 73% of voted remain, 60% of 65+ voted leave majority of employed voted remain, those without jobs leave Scotland, City voted remain, rural areas leave Motives fears of immigration and globalization loss of national sovereignty, too much centralization distrust of experts/elite, didn t believe negative consequences costs of «remain»: short-run, highly visible, benefits: long-run, more diffuse, less certain organization of vote: leave option vague, not clearly defined WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 11

12 II. Economic and political consequences What is alternative to EU? voters not informed about which alternative to EU! for same reason: consequences difficult to predict 2 extreme outcomes 1. Norway model: cooperative outcome 2. WTO model: non-cooperative outcome pursue common interest, or not WTO model a non-cooperative, negative outcome greatest autonomy, greatest damage, economic, and political? complete separation, EU treats UK like third country all EU law to be replaced by national law WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 12

13 II. Economic and political consequences WTO model the shock consequences market access : external tariffs, rising non-tariff barriers market access: financial services regulation (Citi) some fiscal savings in net contributions (compensation?) more control over migration less inward FDI, more outward FDI WTO model consequences for UK slow process: lower productivity, less investment & growth estimates: 6-8% poorer in long-run, e.g. corresponds to.5 pp slower annual growth over 15 years political cohesion of UK (Scotland, border controls Ireland) WTO model consequences for EU Research: without EU integration, GDP per capita 12% lower UK 65 Mio. people, 13% of EU population, 16% of EU28 GDP 16% of single market, 16% smaller gains from integration WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 13

14 II. Economic and political consequences Norway model a cooperative, positive outcome smallest economic losses, smallest gain in autonomy largely keep market access and common EU law, but e.g. exclude agriculture limited gain in migration control, if at all must continue to pay contributions, small fiscal savings might be required for political cohesion of U.K. (Scotland) Disappointment of Brexit expectations little fiscal savings, little gain in autonomy not much migration control (unless EU changes) loss of influence on EU developments and internationally difficulties in market access of financial sector WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 14

15 III. Future of EU Future of EU: a more normative, personal view consider reasons and motives for Brexit vote, also elsewhere limits to immigration, fiscal burden, distrust, loss of autonomy heterogeneity requires decentralization, subsidiarity principle voters: balanced debate, mutual gains & costs of integration Brexit: continued Brussels bashing did not help Huge tension: EU and Eurozone in EU, voters want less integration/more autonomy in Eurozone, stability requires more integration/less autonomy Eurozone crisis resulted further loss of sovereignty fiscal compact, much stricter since government debt more risky ESM, managing fiscal crisis and default, forced reform banking union, central oversight, resolution, deposit insurance this loss in autonomy required for stability of Eurozone WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 15

16 III. Future of EU Eurozone defines core of EU largest loss in autonomy: Euro & common monetary policy optimal currency area: stability of Euro need more wage flexibility, fiscal insurance, labor mobility to replace national exchange rate adjustments labor mobility important within Eurozone, less outside Principles of cooperation reward cooperation to sustain stability of EU punish deviations (exit) from cooperative strategy deny special deals for each one (UK, CH, Norway ) keep exclusive rights and benefits for core members Two layers of Europe Core EU: all (prospective) Eurozone countries EEA: no Euro, more limited integration, more autonomy WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 16

17 III. Future of EU Core EU economic & monetary integration, Euro & related institutions all 4 freedoms without restrictions, including internal migration full representation in joint decision making (exclusive right) need more reform: in migration and other areas EEA prevent fiscal externalities of migration (portability of benefits) would be consistent with some entry tax, instead of quotas reinstate subsidiarity principle: review federal assignments Norway model: economic, but not monetary integration access to common market (like FTA), without CAP contribution payments, with transparent and universal rules more autonomy, migration less important outside Eurozone no representation, but consultation (acquis communautaire) enforcement by EU / EEA courts some package for all, no special deals WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 17

18 III. Future of EU Conclusions countries would have to choose between clear alternatives (unlike with Brexit vote) enhanced EEA: for those not willing or ready to adopt Euro UK, CH, Norway, Eastern Europe, Turkey cooperation: full representation is exclusive to core EU incentives to move up from EEA to core EU past examples: Austria, Finland, Sweden from EFTA to EU if not, EEA for common interest and equitable cost sharing WPZ Wien St.Gallen Prof. Dr. Christian Keuschnigg 18
