Interesting!

My brother-in-law, Doug, sent this link today. It shows the economy of the various states and how they are roughly equivalent with the economy of other countries in the world.

I note with interest that Illinois' economy is about the size of Mexico's. I think it is positively providential, since Cindi and I are headed from Illinois to Mexico, God willing, in three month's time. That's IF the passports ever make it back here!

You need to wait at least month before you start worrying about the passports.

Interesting indeed

Hummm...
I'm currently living in TN, I'm from TX. I don't see how TN's is like Suadi Arabia but TX is like Canada. TN seems to be so poor! Must be all the country music stars in Nashville.

Kinda depressing to see my state compared to... Pakistan. I didn't know Pakistanis had it so bad!

Well, I looked up Saudi Arabias economy, and it wasn't as good as I thought it was...
Could you tell us if this is like, GDP or income per capita or something else? I'm trying to find the website, but I haven't had luck so far. I think it is really cool, sorry to bug you about it.

Dear Anon,

Sorry! I haven't got the first clue what they used to come up with the comparisons.
