Like many of you, I spent a lot of time this year thinking and discussing the state of our world. As an American living in London, it felt like there was no end to the information cycle. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, 2016 was the year that it became apparent to the U.S. and the U.K. that the status quo was no longer an acceptable way forward for a significant portion of the population. Whether positive or negative in its outcome, people felt that the current way of political thinking (globalization, free trade, open borders, etc.) required a significant re-examination and, ultimately, a change.
