Updated map showing US Gross State Product (GSP) vs the Rest of the World. Students love this!

Mark Perry over at AEI has quickly put together the latest (2013) "Gross STATE Product (GSP)" data onto a map that students find interesting every time I have shown it in the past. It gives a great perspective as to just how large the US economy is and will continue to be (hopefully!).

In place of the name of the US State it puts a country whose dollar value of Gross DOMESTIC Product (GDP) is equal/similar to the dollar value of output of that State.

For instance, Australia's GDP is roughly the same of that of Texas's GSP. Brazil similar to California, so on and so forth.
