The Sound of Economics Live – The Brussels effect: How the European Union rules the world

This was a live recording of an episode of the Sound of Economics, Bruegel's podcast series. The discussion centered around the book of Anu Bradford, The Brussels Effect.

Date: March 3, 2020, 12:30 pm Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

At this event, we recorded an episode of the Sound of Economics, Bruegel’s podcast series. The host and guests discussed Anu Bradford’s book: “The Brussels Effect: How the European Union rules the world”.

Anu Bradford argues in her book that the European Union has a significant amount of power on a global level. The EU shows this power in different policy areas such as data privacy, consumer safety, environmental protection and competition rules. In this book, Ms. Bradford looks at the implications for the UK after Brexit. She argues that regardless of the nature of the relationship after Brexit, the UK will not be able to escape the EU’s regulatory reach.
