About GDP a presidential hopeful and US AG Robert F. Kennedy (D-MA) said this about GDP

Shame he got a bullet and didn't become president.

He gave this beautiful speech in Kansas primary 1968:

Too much and for too long, we seemed to have surrendered personal excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. Our Gross National Product, now, is over $800 billion dollars a year, but that Gross National Product - if we judge the United States of America by that - that Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage.

It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them. It counts the destruction of the redwood and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl.

It counts napalm and counts nuclear warheads and armored cars for the police to fight the riots in our cities. It counts Whitman's rifle and Speck's knife, and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our children. 

Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. 

It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. 

And it can tell us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans.

Mississippi has a bigger GDP than Germany or France?

Yes, they supposedly do, especially with euro tanking. GDP per capita shortened as pc. Per person.

I have Masters' degree in economics. I hate how GDP becomes d*ck measuring contest without people knowing what it is. (old link)

Mississippi's GDP per capita is $42,411. Germany's GDP per capita is $50,801. France's GDP per capita is $43,518. A quick Google search was enough.

By the way, your link is from 2009.

That data from 2009 is likely the result of quantitative easing. The EU did austerity on the other hand.

I was actually browsing Reddit casually and libs were blaming state's governor Tate Reeves (R-MS) for failing the city and calling him racist etc.

0 people were cursing Jackson mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba (D-MS). An even if they did, they would have been banned anyway.

US State capital managed to achieve what Harare, Zimbabwe did. Their water system failed. Mississippi, the 3rd world confirmed.

Their murder rate is higher than in Harare, even higher than in Johannesburg, ZA.

Analysis: Jackson’s rate of killings per capita ranks highest in the U.S.

Zimbabwe and South Africa are safer than Jackson, MS.

That's because South Africa has less Blacks per capita than Jackson, MS.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Not true, Jackson supposedly has 16% White population compared to ZA's 8% (and falling) number. But democracy is majority vote and Whites would be subjected to black governance even if they were at 30%.

I can't think of a more inefficient, environmentally damaging way to transport drinking water than 8 oz plastic bottles. And you know those people will just toss those bottles on the ground when they're empty.

Demcoratic Party influence

No, it's just black people. There are democrat run govenments but only majority black cities have these problems.

Japanese and Chinese have sky-high IQ:s but they vote democrat because they love big Govt and communism.

2 most Japanese states were also most democratic. So figure it out.

That's africans fopr you. They will turn any advanced civilization into the third world if they are put in positions of power. You give them japan tomorrow and in a couple of years that country will resemble africa.
