How the hell did D.C. pass Chicago? Did they redefine the CSA?

DC was past Chicago in the previous rankings too.

These 3 are intriguing. DC and SF have soared to Chicago's level in the past 5 years and its possible to project the Bay Area surpassing Chicago as well in the coming year or 2-including Stockton(15% of all commuters need to commute to the Bay for consolidation-its currently at 13%) with the Bay Area puts the GDP at $527 Billion NOW-just above Chicago.

What is impressive is SF metro is near the same level as DC and Chicago. The reason it's impressive is because DC has the government to boost its GDP and Chicago because considering its size and manufacturing it's up there - but can you imagine SF if it was the nations capital? If SF was the nations capital I'm sure it would overtake LA metro for GDP size and it would probably challenge NYC.

D.C and Baltimore would represent respectably by themselves, but together, they're definitely a major force.

I've always thought of Stockton/Manteca/Tracy as the greater Bay Area anyhow.

Imagine if Sacramento were added. We'd be a force to recon with approaching the level of LA.

Oxnard to San Benadino is >115 Miles.
SF to Sacramento is just a little more than 80.

If San Joaquin County were part of the Bay Area, we would have surpassed Chicago this year.

That's really quite a fete considering how massive Chicago's economy is.

I don't even want to think about Sac yet--way too soon.

But there are thousands of workers who make that long trek to work and back everyday so who knows.

Well, we boomed during the late 90s and then fell between 2000-2002 only to boom again starting again in 2003. Now everywhere is slow but I hope we can keep it together until the housing mess subsides.
