Britain Votes to Leave the European Union

Hosted by  • 

Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union has already toppled Prime Minister David Cameron, rattled global markets and sent the pound sterling to its lowest point in 3 decades. And today is just Day One of the Brexit’s reverberations. It’s a shocking end to a bitter campaign to decide the future of the country which once played a guiding role in the EU.

We’re going to be hearing more about what Britain's vote to leave the EU means for the U.S. -- about populist sentiment and concerns about border control -- and whether there is any parallel between Britain and the U.S. Is the “Leave” movement’s populist success story a sign of things to come on this side of the pond?
