“It’s hard to see that this won’t have an impact on the US economy,” David Wessel, director of Brookings Institution’s Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy, tells the Monitor.

“But more importantly, this is a manifestation of the anger of people who have been left out of the global economy.”

“The imperative now for elites in the US – business people, politicians – is that we can no longer pay lip service to the effects on people left out of globalization,” he says.
