London could still be the center of world trade and finance if they didn't blow it all on the WW.
Err, without looking into it, I am willing to bet the reason London is no longer the center of world trade and finance has little to nothing to do with World War I expenditures. However, I'd be willing to entertain the possibility of being wrong if you can point to something indicating otherwise...

Ok maybe it's an assumption from someone who never studied history, but it was the hub of all those things before the war, and was not after. They bankrolled a lot of their allies and the ungodly amount of loans they had to take out from the US to keep that insane, mult-million man army going for years drained the wealth of their Victorian golden age like nothing else.

I mean, maybe they were on the way out anyway but it sure didn't help!
