The reputations of the U.S. and U.K. as good places to live and work are in free fall among some of the world's most mobile and cosmopolitan people. Since last year's presidential and Brexit votes, both the U.S. and Britain are perceived as less friendly to foreigners and less politically stable, a survey of almost 13,000 expatriates of 166 nationalities showed. The U.K. ranks 54, down 21 places from last year's survey, after its June 2016 vote to leave the European Union.Just 36 percent of expats have a positive opinion of America's political stability, down from 68 percent in last year's survey.Overall, the U.S. is ranked 43rd of 65 contenders, 17 places lower than last year. As recently as 2014's survey, the U.S. was No. 5 .Three years ago, 84 percent of expats rated the U.S. positively on "friendly attitude to foreign residents," and just 5 percent negatively.
