The State

On June 23, 2016 U.K. citizens voted in a referendum (52 to 48%) to leave the European Union. Since the formation of the European Union in 1993, three and one-half million jobs were brought to the U.K., half of British imports were supported, and equal pay ensured for men and women and the poorest communities in the U.K. received billions in redevelopment monies. (The New Yorker, July 4, 2016, The New York Times July 3, 2016) There are parallels between the results of the U.K. referendum and the 2016 presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. Both have been associated with “patriotism” by some. 

 Would Robert Reich (See his Huffington Post article) agree? How would he describe these events in terms of the “State” discussed in Chapter 7 of our text.
