 Economic geography of the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The economic geography of the United Kingdom reflects its high position in the current economic league tables, as well as reflecting its long history as a trading nation and as an imperial power.
With its dominant position gone, the UK economic geography is increasingly shaped by the one constant: it is a trading nation.
The combined effects of changing economic fortunes, economic restructuring and the decline of the UK as an imperial power have created the so-called North-South divide, in which decaying industrial areas of the north of England and Scotland contrast with the wealthy, finance-and-technology led southern economy.
