As the world’s foremost financial power, with over a quarter of the top 20 largest revenue producing financial service companies being based in the region, to what extent will any significant developments or trends within the US have on countless economies around the globe?
If you look around, at present most of the world is using American products, especially social media with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you look at Apple and the IPod you have got people in Europe and Asia sleeping outside the store just to line up when a product is launched. People no longer use history books, indeed if you want to find something out Google will give you the answer in seconds. Around 90% of the population fully relies on American products, and out of the top 20 companies in the world, I would say 19 are based in the US.
