Farms struggle to recruit EU workers

Graham Watson

12th October 2019

This is a fascinating article with both micro- and macroeconomic implications - and another consequence of Brexit.

A lack of EU workers has meant that a number of farmers have been unable to pick all of their crops meaning that some are being left to rot on the tree.

In microeconomic terms, this has implications for the price of fresh produce and might also be used to highlight derived demand. From a macroeconomic view, it's clear that we are producing inside our PPF, and there might be longer-term consequences for potential growth more generally.
