$14,000,000,000,000 Is A Lot of Economic Output

Greg Mankiw has an interesting post "A Quick Quiz," which made me think of the map above (click to enlarge) that was featured on a previous CD post and other blogs and websites about 9 months ago. The map shows the 50 U.S. states renamed for countries that have similar economic output, measured by GDP.

Bottom Line: The $14 trillion of GDP in the U.S. is a LOT of economic output.
