Biden Counties Account for 70% of U.S. GDP

Americaís political divisions are also economic divisions Ė and they are widening. Thatís one message that comes through in the visual story-telling from our graphics team, published today, which shows how Republicans and Democrats are increasingly divided by the education levels, racial diversity and the amount of urban or rural character to their communities.

Now, the Brookings Institution adds to the finding of a growing divide between metropolitan and non-metropolitan America.

Joe Biden last week won 16% of the nationís counties, but those counties account for 70% of nationís economic activity, Brookings analysts report. By contrast, President Trump won 84% of counties, accounting for less than 30% of GDP.
Yea. I alluded to this in some other thread and Castanza made up some stuff, threw a fit and told me to get outta there.

It's not that interesting. It's pretty intuitive really. If you were to make an analysis of tax paid/collected the numbers would be even more stark.

What did I make up? That is literally what I described...This report simply describes it in GDP instead of population...
It isn't. It's because Joe won urban areas. Urban areas have high GDP and high GDP per capita. Due to progressive taxation the tax rate on that GDP is higher in urban areas which results in an even higher proportion of tax paid.

Let me give you an example: New York City has about 8.4 million people. Kentucky and South Carolina have about 9.1 million people combined. New York City's GDP? Around 937 billion. KY and SC combined? Around 463 billion. If you don't like that example, we could do this all day long with others. Same shit.

This stuff is pretty simple math not rocket science.

Wait are you referring to what we discussed yesterday regarding popular vote? that's what I thought you were talking about.

I guess you were referring to the thread where you claimed to be the tax czar. You can shift tax revenue from income to consumption an likely have a similar effect on GDP growth. As I said, there is more than one way to skin a cat. You were making the claim that the only effective way to tax is through a strictly progressive tax system on an income basis.

A huge reason that NYC has such high GDP is simply because of government handouts. If the government normalized interest rates and stopped running huge bailouts, NYC would look like it did in the 1970s again (or worse). The stock market and real estate would get absolutely destroyed. You could also say the same thing about certain parts of CA. Now, I think many parts of the country benefit more than others by government bailouts but NYC gets way more of a benefit.
as i said, not just nyc i could do this all day with cities.

Right but that's mostly due to government regulations and laws. When China joined the WTO and NAFTA was approved that killed a lot of small communities. So, cities grew and small towns suffered.

This was a pretty well put together piece, I thought. While not capturing the entire substance of the article, I particularly found amusing this paragraph which definitely describes quite a few folks here.

As a high school teacher in a predominantly first-generation and low-income Latino community, I noticed something very interesting. First, my fellow teachers, who were naturally very educated, very liberal and quite talented teachers, and usually came from serious financial privilege, barely survived the Trump presidency emotionally. In real life their lives didn't change a bit. They still went to Europe during the summer, went out to eat all weekend, shopped at Whole Foods and lived in the heart of expensive liberal-bastion neighborhoods like Cambridge and Somerville. In fact, I bet their financial lives improved during the Trump presidency, or at least their parents' lives did.

^ of course, they barely survived emotionally because they are so "woke"!

And they certainly don't live in neighborhoods where the schools are wrecked or crime is out of control due to idiotic progressive POLICIES.

They are perfectly content to virtue signal!   

And perfectly happy to tell everyone else how to live.

Trump kept firing all of his lobbyists.  The only ones left were his family and son-in-law!  Granted...a couple of Trump's lobbyists also went to jail.  Cheers!
