One problem with the using GDP to compare state's economies of states' economies is
GDP cannot be used to show the level of economic growth in a country.
it ignores domestic production and only measures the balance of imports and exports.
it gives a snapshot of the cost of living without reference to national income.
it is an aggregating measure that doesn't show the standard of living for the average person.
it cannot be adjusted for inflation to give an accurate representation of economic productivity.
