Friday, Jun 17, 2016 | In his Friday New York Times column, Paul Krugman discussed the upcoming “Brexit” vote, in which the British will decide whether or not to remain in the European Union.

He argued that despite the fact that “the E.U. is deeply dysfunctional and shows few signs of reforming,” he would vote to remain in it for the simple reason that “Brexit would make Britain poorer.”
