Transatlantic Working Group Director Susan Corke and host Gregory Feifer start by discussing recent developments, including a new Brookings report on the rise of illiberal states, protests in Montenegro, and the Russian Troika Laundromat scandal money-laundering.
Then Amanda Sloat of the Brookings Institution joins Greg to explain the uncertainty over the looming March 29 date for Britain’s exit from the European Union. With shifting positions in parliament and the government, will the deadline be extended? Could there be a second referendum? What are the technical issues and stakes, deal or no deal?
