Economists are fond of saying - "in Texas more in size and scope." And so it is. Make it easy - just look at the available statistics - based on AMarkets.
1. Provisions of Texas account for 10.4 billion barrels of crude oil. This is 31.4% of all US oil reserves. And that's enough to, figuratively speaking, to complete the building Empire State Building (37 million cubic feet, or 276,779,000 gallons of liquid raw materials). 2. In Texas 28690 registered machines. For comparison - in Harvard studying 21 thousand students. 3. In Texas, recorded 2,164,852 private firms. The Dakota, for comparison - a little over 61 thousand. 4. In Texas, home to 1.65 million undocumented immigrants. It is more than the entire population of Philadelphia. 5. If Texas was a separate country, the size of its GDP allowed to occupy 12th place in the global ranking of countries with the largest income. That's $ 1.65 trillion - more than in Australia or South Korea.
