The UK's international financial services sector (the city of London) was by far the most dynamic part of the UK economy from the 1960s to 2008. The City remains massively important to the economic well-being of the UK. Unhappily, the City of London is now in retreat, with excessive and unfriendly EU regulation largely to blame.
