Heard this on the radio last night  Smile

The figure, almost five trillion, includes both the country's physical assets, such as all its buildings, and virtual assets like software patents.

It works out at almost £85,000 for every man, woman and child living in the UK, says the Office for National Statistics.

The second biggest price tag - £565bn - is attached to commercial and public buildings, while civil engineering infrastructure such as roads, railways and pipelines are valued at £537bn.

Manufacturing has remained static since 1998 with a value of £200bn.


£5 trillion would buy:
6,200 Millennium Domes
199,000 David Beckhams
11,000 Queen Mary 2 cruise ships
92 International Space Stations
8,800 B-2 Stealth bombers
906,000 Lear jets
41,500 Boeing 747s
2,516 trillion pints of bitter

41500 747s  Laugh out loud

Wonder how much Wales is worth on it's own  Big grin

I second you Donder10, probably a thimble!  Laugh out loud In fact, Wales is that bad neighbor who drives the property values down for the rest of the neighborhood.  Big grin

So now we're appraising whole countries eh? What? Insuring the British Isles in case they should suddenly sink into the sea? That would be one hell of a claim!  Big thumbs up
