The Economist: How Washington state is like Greece | 

The Economist looks at the economies of American states as compared to other nations’ GDPs.

Washington state is about the size of Greece (and, fortunately, not in same mess financially). It’s kind of a fun comparison, this map, even if I can’t quite tell what to do with this information.
