Abstract

In the years before the financial crisis, Britain borrowed too much from the rest of the world, running a persistent trade deficit. We need to make it easier for businesses to invest and develop new trade links. Britain should try to expand on the success of London, and seek to become a global hub. We need to turn our attention away from the declining EU, out to the rest of the world and the emerging global middle class. If we can truly become an Enterprise Britain, we have a bright future.
