UK and the Euro

I'm not posting this because I want to advocate the UK joining the Euro (even though I think it is a good idea... hell, I think Canada should join it as well but that is another story.)

I'm posting this because of this factoid:

Only the US and the euro area have serious global reserve currencies, with about 63 per cent and 27 per cent of the global stock of reserves respectively.

There are a lot more global reserves in Euros than I had thought. Interesting.
