Brexit Shocker - Crisis in Britain, Europe and Global Markets

Brexit shocker - Crisis in Britain, Europe and global markets
On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by British politicians, activists and economists to evaluate the meaning of the stunning UK vote to leave the European Union.

We are in uncharted territory — no country has ever left the European Union before. Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned, and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn is facing a coup. Award-winning filmmaker and activist John Pilger discusses the future of British and European politics in light of this dramatic development.

Jeremy Corbyn is facing a full-fledged coup as his opponents in the Blairite parliamentary Labour Party conspire to oust him in a confidence vote. Are other dramatic developments in British politics — like a new independence referendum for Scotland — possible? Brian is joined by former Member of Parliament and leader of the RESPECT Party George Galloway.

Chaos reigns in global stock and currency markets. Traders were anticipating a vote to remain, but Brexit has badly thrown them off balance. Can the panic be contained? Head of the School of Economics, Politics and History at Kingston University London Steve Keen considers the economic fallout from the referendum.
