When voters in the United Kingdom shocked themselves and other Europeans this summer with the choice to exit their decades-old political and economic union, it caused a wave in currency and stock exchanges around the world, as well as toppling the British prime minister. The markets have largely settled out after the surprising prospect of a looming tectonic shift in EU dynamics, but the implications are yet to be fully understood.
U.S. Fed Chief Janet Yellen noted that Brexit “would negatively affect financial conditions and the U.S. economy.” How so? What does the exit of the United Kingdom mean for the United States’ economy? How will the $280B annual U.S. trade with the bloc be affected? What lies ahead in a new trade relationship with the UK?
A distinguished panel of specialists will take up the questions of Brexit and the U.S. economy at a special presentation on August 16 at the Nashville Chamber of Commerce in an event presented by the International Business Council, the Tennessee World Affairs Council, and the Center for International Business at Belmont.
