Hi!

I am not sure if this has been posted. But I find this map really interesting:

Metro North America: Metros as Hubs of Advanced Industries and Integrated Goods Trade | Brookings Institution

It basically shows the value of goods traded between given pair of cities. Even though I don't thnk the value of services was included, still very interesting and well done map to check out!

What's in Calgary (Canada) and why does it have such strong ties to SF, LA, NY and Houston? Must be a good place to work.

Look at the top traded commodities. A substantial majority of traded commodities are oil and car parts.

Suffice it to say, our economy is completely dependent on oil. This data makes anti-automobile folks sad.
