Trade Priority for the Next Administration: US-UK Free Trade Agreement
The economic arguments are simple. If Brexit does actually harm the world economy for longer than a few stock trading days, a US-UK deal will as quickly and effectively as possible re-anchor Britain within the formal rules for global exchange, helping protect or smooth supply chains and financial flows.
Given the size of the American economy, a bilateral agreement would provide only small net economic benefits to the US. But a high-quality deal is feasible and could set a sound precedent for others that would enable more sizable gains for all parties.
