What a relief it must be for Prime Minister Theresa May that the UK economy is expected to grow strongly every year until 2050, with a growth rate that surpasses all developed nations.
Britain will grow faster than any other major advanced economy over the next three decades as the EU’s share of global output diminishes, according to PwC.
UK economic growth is predicted to outpace the US, Canada, France and Germany between 2016 and 2050, with average annual growth of 1.9pc.
This is also double the average annual pace of growth expected in Japan and Italy. — The Telegraph
The chart below shows the average annual real GDP growth rate of G7 countries from 2016 to 2050.

It seems that Brexit will barely register as an economic hiccup and that Britain’s economy will continue to thrive in a post-Brexit world — and that, after many dire reports to the contrary were published prior to, and since the June 23 2016 referendum on EU membership.
You see? The sky isn’t falling, it’s snowing. Get outside and enjoy it! The UK is going to be just fine.
