What’s Next For The Special Relationship?

The past 18 months have been a political whirlwind in both the UK and USA.
Britain’s departure from the European Union presents the opportunity for a free trade deal to be forged between the two countries. But will the opportunities be seized upon in a timely manner, or at all?

Today the IEA’s Director General Mark Littlewood speaks to Michael Carnuccio, President and CEO of the E Foundation for Oklahoma, a think tank aiming to grow Oklahoma State’s prosperity in the long term.

Mark and Michael discuss the prospects of a free trade deal between Oklahoma state and the United Kingdom directly, focusing on what such an arrangement would look like, and what it could mean for the development of other agreements between the States and the UK post-Brexit.

Michael also gives an update on politics overseas, his assessment of President Donald Trump’s first year in office, and his predictions for the November midterm elections.
