Ireland and Brexit: Modeling the impact of deal and no-deal scenarios



Adele Bergin, Philip Economides, Abian Garcia-Rodriguez, Gavin Murphy | Economic and Social Research Institution

This Article attempts to quantify the macroeconomic impact of Brexit on the Irish economy. Given both the political and economic uncertainty, we consider a range of alternative scenarios. We focus on the most well understood channels through which Brexit will affect Ireland, namely though lower trade, incorporating the impact of tariff and non-tariff measures, and the potentially positive impact of FDI diversion to Ireland. Our approach, and the main contribution of this paper, is to build up estimates of each of these channels from a range of recent microeconomic studies, so our estimates are anchored in the empirical literature.
