  1. The gutting of our industrial base certainly seems to be highly correlated with that chart. The worst declines are in the proverbial rust belt.

  2. The GDP of Detoilet has actually gone up by some 21 billion, its population has gone down, but it’s still worse off than it was in 1978. ?

  3. I am shocked that DC is not number 1, maybe because “DC” is really a megopolis and this chart only counts what’s within the actual DC borders itself?

  4. “The GDP of Detoilet has actually gone up by some 21 billion, its population has gone down, but it’s still worse off than it was in 1978. ?” – Government spending and the auto makers, who again, are recipients of government largess. It is also possible that they are just cooking the books.

  5. Hi PeakFinance.

    Having lived in Fairfax County I can attest to its splendors and those of the other DC ‘burbs. But nothing comes close to NYC. It is a community of wealth unprecedented in the history of humanity. Even with 20% here in NYC below the poverty rate and the accompanying public housing and rent control it makes hardly a dent. Millionaires are middleclass in downtown NYC.

  6. We find topping the “GDP” (productivity!) chart are:

    DC the home base of the BRA tyranny, NY, city of global banksters, and Los Angeles home of the demonic (Angeles=demonic!) entertainment media.

  7. funny how outsiders like the DC area now. As in not funny at all but a sign of how yankees and libs destroy everything they touch. I lived across the river from it for a few years when I was a kid. MD and northern VA was a much better place before the outsiders moved in and ruined it. The locals I’m still in contact with don’t like the changes either, and the growth there matches the growth in the govt which hasn’t been good for most White men

  8. I find the correlation between the declining cities and the large number of blacks living there to be compelling…and are they not all Democrat-controlled/run cities as well?

  9. It’s interesting that Minneapolis stayed in exactly the same place, though I can tell you frankly that the ‘quality of living’ in the “Minne-apple” is nowhere near what it was in 1978- we just are lucky to not have gotten to ‘critical mass’ with our “multicultural” folk…. yet.
