November 28th, 2018: As predicted by Gibson Index in ‘The Economist’ in 2016, UK exports in the two years since the Brexit vote have exploded by 15%, the biggest rise in recent history. Marcus Gibson, editor of Gibson Index Ltd and former columnist for ‘The Financial Times’, said: “This is entirely contrary to the Doomsday forecasts of the Treasury, CBI and IoD, Bank of England, OECD and World Bank, and other ‘experts’. If this rate of export expansion continues it will result in nothing short of an economic miracle that will be studied for years to come.
“It is a great pity that the mainstream media missed this historic development. They’ve failed to profile the amazing SMEs – in consumer goods, luxury gifts, food & drink, and in manufacturing - who travel the world selling British-made goods in new, high growth markets outside the EU – such as Kazakhstan, Oman, and Macedonia.
“If this export rise keeps going, in just six years the UK exports to the EU may fall below 25% of total UK exports – sharply reducing our current dependence on the will of the European Commission and EU politicians.”
