Ever Wonder Where U.S. Cities Rank Economically Worldwide

Ever wonder where cities, or in this case, metropolitan areas, the largest 20 in the United States, compare economically to cities and countries around the world? I do, and this chart is plain awesome! The city data is 2008 from a PriceWaterhouseCooper report and estimates of country GDP are 2010 from the World Bank.

My big takeaways are the following:

– Philadelphia over Moscow?

– Miami over all of Portugal?

– Minneapolis almost on par with all of Ireland?

– Detroit, folks, Detroit over all of New Zealand
