Surprising Brexit Vote But …

Not so surprising, when one thinks about it. National sovereignty and identity are important and globalization is not working and won’t ever work for the people. That’s what everyone can take out of the Brexit vote. I’ve been following the WSJ coverage and I was pretty sure...
