''Measuring the external risk in the United Kingdom''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.2 )
This paper aims to describe the evolution of the external risk in the United Kingdom between 1961 and 2008. We first present a theoretical description of the risk indicator. Then, we calculate this measure for the British economy in the period of study. In general, the results reveal a very small increase of external risk. Finally, the relationship between the two dimensions of external risk: trade openness and external volatility is analysed.
Keywords: trade openness, terms of trade volatility, external risk, United Kingdom
