The world after Brexit

Baker Institute fellows examine Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union in a series of commentaries:

  • A Houston Chronicle editorial referencing the economic effect of Brexit on Texas notes that "worry and uncertainty in the global markets can't be good for the state." Adds political science fellow Mark Jones: "Lower global economic growth would mean less demand for oil and natural gas and in turn lower prices for the Texas energy industry, which is already suffering." Read "Editorial: Us, next? No. There's no changing Brexit, but we can make sure something similar doesn't happen here," published June 24 (subscription required).
