I think I read somewhere that Texas has the second largest economy in the US after California. Also New York should be much higher on the list and I am not even sure Hawaii and Washington should be in the top 10. Seattle might be a top 10 economy, but Hawaii I am not so sure about.

There are nearly 2 dozen counties in the U.S. that are more populated than Hawaii.

How in the world do you rank that state at #3? LOL.

It is difficult to not look at a numbered list as an order anyway though.

Why not put those states in the order you think they are if you were going to go through the trouble of making this tread?
