SSI Live 060 - The European Union, and U.S. National Interests — Over the last two weeks, there has been some debate in the United States regarding whether Brexit is a good thing from Washington's perspective, and whether other countries could or should follow it. This discussion boils down to whether the continued existence of the EU is in U.S. national interests. Should we be questioning this 70-year old consensus in U.S. foreign policy, and how does the EU support U.S. interests as well as its policies around the globe? The SSI's Prof. Jef Troxell joined Dr. John R. Deni to discuss these and related questions. Listen below or click here to download.
