加州经济规模超过英国,排名世界第五

LISA MARIE SEGARRA 2018年05月13日

加州早在2002年就已经排在了第5位,但经济衰退之后的2012年滑落到了第10位。

加州经济经历了飞跃式发展。

如果有3,950万人口的加州是一个独立的国家,按照美国周五公布的最新联邦数据,它将是全球第五大经济体,超越有6,560万人口的英国。

加州的经济规模为2.7万亿美元,排在美国、中国、日本和德国之后。据美联社报道,加州庞大的经济规模要归功于其繁荣的科技行业和好莱坞。加州人口占美国总人口的12%,但在2012年至2017年期间,却贡献了16%的就业增长。同期加州国内生产总值增长了1,270亿美元,帮助其一举成为第五大经济体。

加州的多数经济活动都集中在海滨大城市,如旧金山、圣何塞、洛杉矶和圣地亚哥等。

经济规模在全球名列前茅的其他州包括德克萨斯州,经济规模1.7万亿美元,全球排名第11位,纽约州经济规模1.5万亿美元,全球排名第13名。

实际上,加州早在2002年就已经排在了第5位,但经济衰退之后的2012年滑落到了第10位。(龙8国际|官网)

California’s economy just made a huge leap.

If the state –with its 39.5 million people – was an independent country, it would have the fifth largest economy in the world, according to new federal figured released on Friday – just surpassing the United Kingdom, which has a population of 65.6 million.

California’s economy of $2.7 trillion sits behind the United States, China, Japan and Germany. California’s large economy is attributed to its thriving tech sector and Hollywood, according to the Associated Press. It has 12% of the U.S. population, but has contributed 16% of total job growth between 2012 and 2017. California’s gross domestic product also went up by $127 billion from 2016 to 2017, helping to give it a push to reach the fifth spot.

Most of the economic activity is centered around California’s big cities along the coast – including San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Other top ranking states include Texas, in the 11th spot worldwide with an economy of $1.7 trillion and New York at No. 13 with $1.5 trillion.

California actually ranked in 5th place before in 2002 before falling all the way to 10th in 2012 after the recession.
