More than three million British jobs would be at risk if Britain leaves the European Union, an official Treasury analysis has disclosed.
Danny Alexander, the Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, will inflame tensions in the Coalition on Wednesday by making public Treasury figures that show Britain’s reliance on the EU.
The number of jobs depends upon the general macroeconomic stance in the economy. Aggregate demand and all that stuff.
What the actual jobs are depends upon trade patterns.
Being inside or outside the EU doesn’t change the number of jobs, it just changes what those jobs are.
