Listen to The Economist Washington Bureau Chief David Rennie describe the potential economic consequences to the U.S. economy of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, and the parallels between Brexit voters and supporters of Donald Trump.


“The last thing the American government needs right now is global turmoil in any significant economy,” says Rennie.

Britain’s investments in the United States amount to half a trillion dollars, Rennie says in his discussion with Chief Content Officer David Ellis and CQ Roll Call’s Managing Editor Adriel Bettelheim.
