    I'd love to move there in the next decade or so. They don't have the same resentment of success we're plagued with here in the UK. Just hope they don't go too far down the socialist path, thus ruining their country...

    No it won't. You don't lose a rating to other economies, there aren't so many ratings that have to be shared out between all the countries. You lose ratings because you lose credit worthiness, and that won't be happening to Britain in the foreseeable future.

    What can pull Britain back into a strong economy now that the financial sector isn't what it used to be? Whatever it is, it won't be enough.

    The financial sector will be back on its feet extremely quickly, all the big London banks are starting to turn billion £ profits again already. Give it 2 years and they will be back where they were. The developing economies will not be able to compete with the financial sector in the UK.

    Good luck getting a Green card. It's difficult enough for people with large incomes to get one, let alone Joe Average.

    Well yeah, it's like buying a burgler alarm, CCTV camera, pressure pads, security lights and then not bothering with a front door.
    I love that analogy.

    I suppose there is truth in what you're saying, it all makes sense. But how will we recover socially?

    I think some of the social problems are due to 12 years of a Labour government. It's not so much that I don't like Labour but I think when any government is in power for that length of time things start to go down the drain, we need new leadership and a change to revitalise the country and hopefully this will happen with the election in a few months.

    I don't dislike the US either and would love to live and work their for a few years in the future actually, as well as on the continent. I can always see myself coming back here though.

    Why is that then? I mean if you marry someone there, then you're in pretty much.
    My family and I lived in the US for over 5 years. My dad ran a company there and employed Americans. We built a house over there and all that jazz.

    After 9/11 we were asked to leave, despite us being economically beneficial to the US, providing jobs to Americans.

    My brother, however, stayed behind and married an American and had a child. He still had to fight his ass off with lawyers for another 5 years to be allowed to stay in the country. During these 5 years he was not allowed to work because of his status.

    So yeah, it's not that easy.

    Your spot on there. One more thing can I ask? What about the wealth gap between the poorest and richest cities, when will it narrow down? There seems to be much division in England nowadays.

    I will +rep tommorow. :cool:

    Very hard to say. I guess the problem has always been that the UK economy is based on finance and the financial services sector is almost entirely based in London and the South East. Perhaps the recent recession will encourage more investment outside of London once the economy is growing again and businesses are more confident. Hopefully the next government will also encourage investment in under developed parts of the country. I expect only time will tell.

    Thanks
