The Spectator: If UK Joined The US We Would Be The Second Poorest State

Posted on August 28, 2014

The figures, produced by Fraser Nelson, the Editor of The Spectator, also said that without the South-east, Britain could be considered worse off than America’s most-deprived state as well.

Nelson said that Britain would rank 50th out of 51 states based on the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita figures and cost of living.

For his research, Nelson took the US figures for GDP per state in America and divided it by the population to create a GDP per capita figure.
