Christian Broda, professor of economics at the University of Chicago, has created a map where he replaced U.S. states with countries with a similar level of GDP. With an $825 billion stimulus package on it’s way to the House floor, we get yet another perspective on America’s role in the global marketplace. It is pretty crazy that all of Canada’s GDP is about the same as Texas. More surprising was Russia’s GDP was about equal to New Jersey. And they don’t even have the Giants.
