Being an entrepreneur who works internationally and lives outside of my "home" country is not always a bed of roses and last week it definitely had me frustrated. Due to my business and work history, I have a few different bank accounts in different countries but have decided to keep my company's home base in Finland, the country where I was born.
Brexit! In our latest sign of populist political dissatisfaction, the British voted last night to leave the European Union. Voters in declining industrial cities left behind by the global economy provided the decisive margin, which ought to give American economic and political elites a serious jolt.
This should give every internationalist a serious pause in order to rethink how best to engage and bring everyone along on this journey, because without a serious reconsideration, America could experience something very similar to the United Kingdom and wake up on November 9th to President-elect Trump.
