Hmmm, I think you guys will find that overall the EU is becoming considerably less dependent on trade with the US over the last decade or so
I would be interested in seeing some data and your interpretation of it.
In 2001, the EU imported $158 B in goods and services, and exported $ 220 B
In 1991, the EU imported $103 B in goods and services, and exported $ 86 B
(above refers to EU trade with USA - $1 B = $1,000,000,000)
As you can see, US purchases from the EU increased almost 3-fold in the last decade. Not a shabby business you are doing with us. If we stop or reduce buying, how would it affect the your economy?
My motto is most appropriate here....
"In God we trust
Everyone else please bring data."
