Bayern would lose in the case of the absolute income losses are also quite clear. In addition, the Brexit meet strong regions with a high proportion of small and medium-sized enterprises – for example, the region surrounding Stuttgart and Hamburg and the Rhineland.

In the case of a contractual exit the Simulation looks far less negative impact. For Germany suppose then income losses of around five billion euros. Also for the whole of the EU (excluding the UK) would halve the loss in the approximately – estimated at 22 billion euros.
