Chief Eurozone Economist Claus Vistesen on Latvia
The U.K.'s unexpected vote for Brexit means a stronger dollar for the foreseeable future, a sharp though likely containable drop in U.S. stock prices, and a further delay before the Fed next raises rates. The vote does not necessarily mean the U.K. actually will leave the EU, because the policy choices now facing leaders of Union have changed dramatically.

But unsuccessful referendums have been followed up with second plebiscites elsewhere in Europe.
