Businesses and business representative organizations are constantly complaining about the effects of European Union laws, policies, and regulations. In 1992, Britain benefited considerably by withdrawing from the European Union's Exchange Rate Mechanism and programme of Economic and Monetary Union. This study provides a detailed guide to the economic and political case for British withdrawal from the EU bloc as a whole. Major general arguments for withdrawal are that (a) the economic costs of EU membership substantially exceed the benefits, and (b) withdrawal is necessary to restore democracy, business and market freedom, the rule of law, and other basic features of a modern liberal social order.

"Clear and thorough ... Examining many of the key aspects of EU membership... students of European business or politics will find this guide useful and interesting reading." (European Access, & European Access Plus online)
