Our challenge, as individuals in this era of discontent, is to ensure that we can still come together to move forward and improve the lives of all.

    China’s stock market and RMB exchange rate both took a hit, but these were obvious reactions to Britain’s surprise vote to leave the EU. This brand of populism will get a boost from the success of the Brexit “Leave” campaign, but the long-term global effects will take years to become clear.
