Description of the contract

Since the creation of the Single European Market in 1992, the European Union has developed into the most economically integrated region in the world. It currently comprises around 500 million people and around £11 trillion GDP. General economic theory supports the argument that liberalisation of markets through the removal of tariff and non-tariff barriers leads to better economic performance overall through enabling a more efficient allocation of economic resources and leading to greater competition, thus increasing incentives to invest and innovate. The overarching benefits from the creation of the Single Market include the advantages of wider choice of goods and services, better quality and lower prices. As part of the ongoing discussion about the impacts of EU membership on the UK, there is interest in the following question – Are UK consumers better off following the creation of the Single Market?
