How rich is your state compared to the rest of the world?

Recommended Posts

How rich is your state compared to the rest of the world? California has a larger GDP than the United Kingdom and Texas's economy is bigger than Canada

  • Map shows how each US state's economy stacks up to countries around globe
  • California is not only largest state in US by GDP, it has fifth largest GDP in world
  • After CA and Texas, New York unsurprisingly rounded out the top three of the list with $1.70trillion, surpassing Korea's economy at $1.66trillion
  • Rounding out the top five were Florida ($1.04trillion) and Illinois ($868billion), who were compared to Mexico ($1.20trillion) and the Netherlands ($910billion) 

 

The US once again had the highest GDP in the world in 2018. 

But many states also had economies that match some of the most affluent nations across the globe.

A map produced by HowMuch.net shows that even America's smallest states are holding their own when it comes to comparing their GDP with other countries.

America's economy hit $20.5trillion in GDP in 2018, and 2.97 trillion of that came solely from California

 
 
California is not only the largest state in the US by GDP, it is also the fifth largest economy in the world.

It even surpasses the United Kingdom, whose 2018 GDP clocked in at $2.81trillion. 

A new map shows just how each US state's economy compares to a country across the world, revealing that even America's smallest states are holding their own

California last had the world's fifth largest economy in 2002 but fell as low as 10th in 2012 following the Great Recession.

Since then, the largest US state economy has added 2 million jobs and grown its GDP by $700billion.

California's economic output is now surpassed only by the total GDP of the US, China, Japan, and Germany.

Following behind California in the state GDP ranking was Texas at $1.78trillion.  

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that at least is true when it comes to comparing the state to Canada's economy - which hit $1.73trillion in GDP in 2018. 

New York unsurprisingly rounded out the top three of the list with $1.70trillion, surpassing Korea's economy at $1.66trillion. 

Top 10 biggest US states by GDP - and the foreign nations they compare to

1. California ($2.97T) - United Kingdom ($2.81T)

2. Texas ($1.78T) - Canada ($1.73T)

3. New York ($1.70T) - Korea ($1.66T)

4. Florida ($1.04T) - Mexico ($1.20T)

5. Illinois ($868B) - Netherlands ($910B)

6. Pennsylvania ($798B) - Saudi Arabia ($770B)

7. Ohio ($680B) - Switzerland ($709B)

8. New Jersey ($634B) - Taiwan Province of China ($603B)

9. Georgia ($595B) - Sweden ($555B)

10. Massachusetts ($577B) - Poland ($550B)

 

The Big Apple has a population of only 8 million, while South Korea alone has 51 million residents. 

Rounding out the top five were Florida ($1.04trillion) and Illinois ($868billion), who were compared to Mexico ($1.20trillion) and the Netherlands ($910billion), respectively. 

But even some of the smallest US states are holding their own with countries across the globe. 

Wyoming, which has the smallest population of the states at less than 600,000 people, hit a GDP of $41billion - almost tied with Jordan, which has a population of 9 million people.

I put this article in the Politics Forrum because the economic Power of the US is constantly being demagogued by the Socialist candidates from the Democratic Party.  This article plainly shows how rich the US is compared to the rest of the world 

Why, why in the world would any Political Party want to destroy the most economic powerful country the world has ever seen.  Why do the Democrats constantly whine that Capitalism isn’t working.  Without getting too much more political ask yourself the simple questions.

 

1. Why do certain people want to claim Capitalism doesn’t work

2. What countries would like to see America lowered in their economic power

 

Put the two questions together and then demand to see the bank accounts of certain politicians and you’ll probably have a fit

Because Pitcher, the far left of the Rat party thinks this country was founded by powerful white Europeans who came over and stole, robbed and pillaged the land for their own gain, worshipped God and formed the finest government the world has ever seen. AND THIS MUST NOT STAND!!! So tear the whole system down and replace it with a socialist/communist system that has been proven to work EVERY time it is tried. And put these Greeny Rats in charge, as they are the smartest the world has to offer and will insure the EQUAL distribution of misery for the masses whom they care so much.

Not wanting to argue at all, md11fr8dawg.....I certainly did get your point

 

And whatever was done in the past is done.

 

But what you wrote above  ( which I did quote) is simply undeniable
