What Does Brexit Mean For Business?

Voters in the UK will decide today whether they want to stay or leave the European Union. We've talked last-minute campaign strategies, myths and heard from Britons on the street. But what would a "Brexit" mean for business? 

The markets have been reacting to the uncertainty created by today’s referendum alongside business leaders. Some have said a UK exit could lead to an economic downturn, not just in the UK but across the EU. But other business leaders have suggested an exit could be good for British businesses. 

We take a look at how industries have been preparing for today’s vote and what a leave or remain means for business and industry with Benjamin Bader, managing director at Jones Lang LaSalle and a director of the British-American Business Council in Chicago.
