If they were countries

The GDP of US states if they were countries. Read more from The Economist.

I gain a better understanding of things when I compare something I'm familiar with (USA) to something I want to learn more about (China). So I found a similar map of China's provinces to put things in perspective. The USA has 23 states with a GDP greater than $500 billion while China has only 1 province. (In 2000, China had only 3 provinces above $100 billion and none above $500 billion.)

The GDP of the provinces in China, if they were countries. Read the full report: "Inside the growth engine: A guide to China's regions, provinces and cities."
