    How Brexit May Change the World

    It's been over a year since Britain voted on a referendum to leave the European Union, and the world is watching. "Brexit" is expected to have wide-ranging consequences, not only for Britain and the EU, but also for the global economy.

    Join us as David Edwards, Professor Emeritus at The University of Texas at Austin, explains the current status of Brexit negotiations and the possible impacts on globalization and the US.
