Brexit Strategy

July 7th, 2016

Episode 732 of 1057 episodes

To help unravel what the U.K.'s decision might mean for the nation's "Special Relationship" with the United States and the 2016 presidential elections, and the world, Celeste and John are joined by two guests. Robert Tuttle served as ambassador to the United Kingdom from the United States from 2005 to 2009. Speaking from California, Tuttle shares his thoughts on how the international landscape will change — and his own surprising plans for casting his own vote in November. Economist columnist Jeremy Cliffe, an expert on politics of Europe, joins the conversation and speaks about how young people will be affected by the Brexit vote — and the parallels between their political participation, or lack thereof, in the U.K. and U.S.
