Between United Kingdom and Romania there are strong economic differences. A comparative study upon the most representative macroeconomic indicators was run, using statistics. The study revealed the gap between the two economies and, in the same time, two different approaches for macroeconomic policies. While British rural areas are seek given their life conditions, in general, Romanian rural areas are not attractive for any inhabitant. It is true that the traditions are diverse and the premises of the countries were never similar. But the expectancy of their inhabitants, no matter the urban or rural environment, for quality of life is the same: high.
