    New York will make as much money this year as the whole of Australia



    All figures in USD.

    The greater New York metro, far and away America’s largest and richest, is projected to produce $1.4 trillion dollars in GMP in 2014. This makes it about the same size as Australia, equivalent to the world’s 12th largest economy.

    LA, projected to account for almost $830 billion in GMP, has a larger economy than that of the Netherlands, and would therefore number among the world’s top 20 economies.

    Chicago, with more than $610 billion in GMP, is about the same size as Switzerland and significantly bigger than Sweden.

    Houston, approaching $490 billion in economic output, is comparable to Poland or Taiwan.

    Greater Washington, DC, with nearly $480 billion in GMP, and Dallas, with $460 billion, are larger than Austria and about on par with Argentina.

    Philadelphia and San Francisco, with about $400 billion in GMP each, are comparable to Thailand.

    Greater Boston, with $360 billion, is larger in economic size than Denmark, and produces slightly less than Colombia.

    Atlanta, with $320 billion in economic output, and Miami, with almost $300 billion, are comparable to Singapore and Malaysia.

    Seattle, with $280 billion in GMP, is comparable to Hong Kong or Chile.

    Detroit, with $220 billion in output, is projected to produce more than Ireland.

    Each of these metros would rank among the 50 largest economies in the world.

    And even far smaller metros can outpace some substantial national economies. With $180 billion in GMP, Denver’s economy is comparable to that of the entire country of New Zealand. Even Anchorage, Alaska, projected to produce nearly $30 billion in GMP, is about the same size as Latvia.

    Amazing. Greater New York also has about the same population as Australia.

    The article then goes on to make more comparisons that make complete sense. Great stuff.
