What Is 'Global Britain'? A Financier and Arms Merchant to Brutal Dictators
Nick Dearden in an OP/ED in the Guardian
This is a pretty good description of what the UK's global footprint these days.

For a very long time, the UK has aggressively moving away from productive work and toward a financialized economy which is little more than a vehicle for parasitism.

It is what is happening to the US as well, but it's not moving quite as quickly, if just because our government is less centralized, and because our economy is so much bigger.
