Abstract

The Transaction Cost Economy

In May 2015, I was on a Brexit discussion panel with a Conservative local councillor and a former Cabinet Minister. It was not the most edifying experience given the audience was dominated by Leave.EU supporters who on being informed that Brexit would lead to increased transaction costs derisively responded: “Wot’s Dat?” This response showed a more profound problem that went beyond the 2016 Referendum campaign. That is, the general lack of understanding of how modern economies work, that appears to afflict not only large numbers of the public but many of their political representatives and media commentators.
