"Over at the very, very compelling Strange Maps site (warning: do not click unless you have an hour to kill) is a map of the U.S. with each state renamed for a country with a similar GDP."

Posted for the Duck so he can explain how the US economy will take up a suburb at most in an equivalent map of Chongqing in another decade or so!

Really only helps to drive home just how far the US has to fall.

How much of that is really due to US people being that much more productive than the rest of the World, and how much of it is simply down to imbalances in exchange rates?
