What do you need to know about the United Kingdom’s split from the European Union, set for March 29th, as cross currents of interest groups in and out of the ruling party in London grapple with the terms of the “Exit” or if there is to be a split at all?
Brexit is a result of a referendum in the United Kingdom in which 71.8% of eligible voters turned out to render a 51.9% to 48.1% result, calling for the UK to separate from the EU. Britain which had been in the EU since 1973 when the bloc was called the European Economic Community, invoked Article 50 of the treaty starting the countdown to the divorce. Dr. Adam Bronstone will discuss several Brexit issues - How did the UK and the EU get to this point? Where are they now? Where are they going? What does it mean for the United States?
