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
