47% of UK exports go to the EU. 16% of EU exports go to the UK. Which economy will be proportionately more damaged?

Plus a fair chunk of those EU exports are food....the UK has no choice but to import food. OK, the US is a partial alternative if you want hormone laden meat.
"the US is a partial alternative if you want hormone laden meat." The United States is not keen on pursuing a separate free trade deal with Britain if it leaves the European Union, the US trade representative, Michael Froman said.

If Britain left the EU, Froman said, it would face the same tariffs and trade barriers as other countries outside the US free trade network.

Edit; “We’re not particularly in the market for free trade agreements with individual countries. We’re building platforms … that other countries can join over time.”
