Despite remaining apart from the Euro Area, the U.K. economy maintains close trading relations with nearby continental economies. However, its economic structure and regulatory approach differs greatly from most European economies. During this webcast, Bart van Ark, chief economist of The Conference Board, and guest speaker Simon Tilford, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform, discuss how these structural and regulatory differences may help or hinder the recovery in the United Kingdom and in continental European economies.
