How special a relationship?

[Original Link]

Richard Wachman’s article has some interesting facts about US/UK business relationships. I was surprised to discover that, in some ways, the relationship is rather well-balanced:

  • The US/UK investment relationship is worth $376bn, split almost equally between the countries
  • One million Britons are employed by US companies in the UK and about a million Americans are employed by UK companies in the US

Of course, if you think of these in proportion to the countries’ sizes, they aren’t quite so balanced…
