Europe: 8 out of 50

Charles Galunic |

The Economist writes about the 50 most valued companies in the world, where Europe has about 8 (Switzerland and the UK have 4 of those 8). American firms pushed ahead with the recovery: European giants looked good when America slumped but now fall back in the pack.
