Which US states have greater GDP than other nations?

This post is also available in: itItaliano

Unlike many countries where public infrastructure is planned, financed, construct and maintained by national governments, the majority of US infrastructure is the responsibility of states, cities, counties and public agencies. Each can issue their own bonds, which gives investors opportunities to invest in quasi-sovereign debt from jurisdictions whose economic output rivals that of many countries. This map shows how the individual states’ GDP equals the national GDP of various countries. With sovereign debt yields around the world remaining stubbornly low, higher yielding US municipal bonds can present an attractive, higher yielding, quasi-sovereign option for global investors.
