Marketplace Weekend for Friday, July 1, 2016
On this special episode of Marketplace Weekend, host Lizzie O'Leary travels to London and Northern England to cover Brexit. Marketplace Weekend collaborates with BBC's In the Balance to bring listeners stories from the UK. A Ukrainian shop owner talks about what she's put into her business, and how Brexit impacts her. Lizzie reports from St. Helens, a working class town that came into its own as a manufacturing hub during the industrial revolution. Locals talk about why they voted the way they did, and Mike Palin, St. Helens Council Chief Executive, discusses how industry there might fare after a split from the European Union. Marketplace's Paddy Hirsch and John Buckley go long and short on Brexit and the United Kingdom, and Jill Schlesinger weighs in on how people on the American side of the pond can cope with Brexit's influence on the markets.
