At the top of the list: The U.S., which has lost about $200 billion since 2009.
That is a staggering number for a country that has only been in the middle of a financial crisis for less than a year.
But the problem extends well beyond the U.P. The list goes on and on, from the U-turn on the Keystone XL pipeline, to the recent bailout of Bank of America.
It is an example of a country’s economy spiraling out of control, and that is why I have advocated for a major overhaul of the U,S.
The U.K. is a bit closer to the bottom.
While the British economy has grown by a healthy 2.3% this year, it has also lost nearly $400 billion, according to the Office for National Statistics.
On the upside, there are some positives.
For one, it is in the process of recovering from a major recession, according a report from The Economist, a business publication.
There is also a big boost to consumer spending.
As the economy recovers, so too does consumer confidence.
The Bank of England said in February that the UK had a higher confidence index than any other country.
Yet there are plenty of concerns about the U’s economy.
For instance, it was one of the worst performing emerging markets in the world last year.
In fact, a report by the Economist earlier this year warned that the U is “one of the world’s least resilient economies,” with the potential for a “major economic shock.”
In a world of fast-moving, globalized commerce, the UB’s rapid growth, low inflation and strong government support is a major advantage, said Nicholas Kaldas, the chief economist at Barclays.
While the UU has a lot of work to do, it can take some lessons from the world of China, said Kalds.
If you are a small, middle-class country with lots of technology, it does a lot to help its economy.
If you are not, it may not have much.
But, it must do more to help the poor and working class in the U to grow, said Peter Haines, an economist at UBS.
