A deep dive on Brexit, past, present, and future, with perhaps the foremost expert on the issue, Sir Ivan Rogers. Sir Ivan was the Permanent Representative of the UK to the EU between 2013 and 2017; he also served various top treasury roles under Kenneth Clarke, Gordon Brown, and Tony Blair. Eloquent and prescient, he takes stock of how the UK ended up with Brexit. On the current juncture, he summarises the risks around the rift between the UK and EU, the usefulness of multilateral pacts governing trade and commerce, and perhaps most profoundly, the role of the UK in the global landscape. Looking forward, he offers caution and hope for the UK, with clear eyed exposition on the challenges associated with the pandemic, innovation, labour market, debt, trade in goods and services, and evolving relationship with the EU and the US.
