So only vote to leave if you have more spare cash than you need. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...ost-up-to-950000-jobs-cbi-warns-a6942846.html Leaving the European Union could blow a £100bn hole in the UK economy and cost up to 950,000 jobs, the CBI has warned, in what is easily the most pessimistic economic forecast yet of the implications of Brexit. The forecast, compiled for the CBI by the accountancy firm PwC, will be outlined by the business lobby group’s director general, Carolyn Fairbairn, at a speech at the London Business School. The forecast shows that UK GDP could be 5.5 per cent smaller (around £100bn in today’s money) by 2020, in a scenario in which a favourable free-trade deal between the UK and EU is not agreed relatively swiftly. That’s smaller relative to a scenario in which Britain votes “yes” and the economy grows at a steady 2.3 per cent a year. That shortfall in national income would equate to an average loss of around £3,700 for every household.
