Macroeconomics, contrary to popular belief, is actually interesting and good. Having done significant research into macroeconomic policies and the implications on interest rates and cash flow for nations, I somehow ended up comparing credit card benefits around the world.
Specifically, it is interesting to view the fees and benefits associated with a particular card from a particular credit provider that offers the card across different geographical regions.
For example, American Express (Amex) offers their esteemed Platinum card in many major markets, including the U.S. and Australia.
Below is a comparison of the features, benefits and fees of this card between the two markets where significant or noteworthy deviations occur. I have emphasised which country I believe has the best value for each of criterion.
