Diverging Capitalisms? Britain, the City of London and Europe
Our project ‘Diverging Capitalisms? Britain, the City of London and Europe’, led by FEPS, Policy Network and SPERI considers the changing nature of the British economy, its place within the European economic space and the consequences of Brexit for Britain and the EU more broadly.
A series of policy briefs have been published through the project.
In this Brief Andrew Gamble and Scott Lavery, both of SPERI, offer a brief historical overview of the development of the UK growth model and the strategic orientation of British business groups. They outline how Brexit has problematised conventional economic and business strategies and the potential development trajectories for the British economy now that Article 50 has been triggered.The findings presented in this Brief take the analysis developed as part of the workshop entitled ‘After Brexit: British and EU capitalisms at the crossroads?’ held in Brussels on March 24th 2017.
In this Brief Lucia Quaglia, University of York, and Waltraud Schelkle, London School of Economics, provide new insights on how fragmented political and economic interests, both internationally and intra-nationally, have been shaping EU economic policy-making in the wake of the global financial crisis, the Eurozone crisis and the UK’s referendum on EU membership. The findings presented in this Brief take the analysis developed as part of the workshop entitled ‘Diverging Capitalisms, Part 2: Brexit and new EU economic governance’ held in London in October 2016.

In this Brief Helen Thompson and Leila Simona Talani consider the impact of Brexit on the City, focusing on two key aspects of the debate: the tensions between the City and democratic politics, and the challenges for the future of the City posed by the vote on 23 June for Britain to leave the European Union (EU). The analysis presents findings from the first workshop in the series entitled, ‘Diverging Capitalisms, Part 1: The City after the Crisis’ which was held in London in April 2016.
