The Leave vote has left many employers concerned about the future of their business, especially since free movement looks certain to end. It is crucial that future policy is designed to ensure that employers can continue to source the labour and skills they need. This presents particular challenges for the construction industry which employs significant numbers of EU migrants.
NIESR is producing a set of workable options for immigration policy post-Brexit through consulting with employers in sectors which look most likely to feel the impact of the end of free movement.

The need for new ideas in macroeconomics is clear. The monetary, fiscal and financial policy rules, designed on the theories and predictions of the universal paradigm of modern macroeconomics, ended in spectacular failure. Champions of modern macroeconomics, for example Robert Lucas, asserted that its main objective of preventing depression conditions had been solved. Not only has this proved to be false, especially in some European countries, but the core model has failed to provide useful insights for policy makers having to understand the causes and hence respond to the largest economic crisis for two generations.
