Chris Drown : This leaves out a huge part of the picture- In the states with the lowest value per $100, they have significantly higher income. The median income in DC is around $75,000 while the median income in Mississippi is $36,000. Additionally, it does not take into account things like minimum wage. The minimum wage in DC is $12.50 while the minimum wage in Mississippi is $7.25 (and it would be lower if there was no federal mandate of $7.25). While this video does put into perspective the value of the dollar according to state, it does not take into account any other qualifiers and macroeconomic analytic evidence.

Kendrick Meek Jr. : What's with the eerie music?

Vibez With Tay : Where my Cali people at?

coc0s : Some states, such as CA, CO, NY, VA, WA, seem to be defined by their biggest urban areas even though cost of living is a lot lower well away from those urban areas.

kubtastic : Hawaii had the worst at $84, but you put D.C.'s $85 at #51.

Mrbrain bob : Basically red states are really poor so penny's are worth gold while blue states are far richer so penny's are worth penny's.

AZDuffman : Moral of the map--liberal areas give less buying power.

vandertuber : Compare Urban Areas (The City) to Rural Areas (The Countryside), and you will notice an immense difference, greater than the difference amongst the various states.

Clorox Tree : So Texas is truly more Rich than California

Fco. Beltran : Never visit california or new york, got it

John Catalano : Anyone else find it a little suspicious that republican controlled states have money that is worth more than democratically controlled states? Oh that's right, lower taxes better market and economy.

President Evil : cost of living will always be lower in the south, unlike libtard states

Dream : Didn't you already make a video like this?

Levi 🇺🇸 : Just goes to show Conservatism > Liberalism

David Bourland : Now you all know why you shouldn't live in Commiefornia

NiftyTheLynx : One word: socialism

Never Lucky m8 : I live in the Netherlands.

thatamerican550 : So the poorer the state, the more its worth? That's not necessarily a good thing if you think about it

houchi69 : Of course, states that $100 can buy you the most are all the sucky ones.

HowToMEME : 0:30 "OHIO WHITE BOY" : Good vid. Thanks

Tomas Crook : This map is kinda stupid because it almost gets the point but not quite. The power of the dollar is higher in rural areas b/c big surprise, there is less wealth in those areas, overall. If they did this study by counties you would see a clear divide between urban and rural. This is why the more populated areas of the south such as Texas, Georgia and Florida have lower buying power(in comparison then similar republican states). In the far west there is little arable land, therefore people tend to flock to cities instead of having spread out farming communities. This hypothesis is further supported by the fact that the most densely populated states, Hawaii and DC are the lowest in buying power. The notable exceptions are Ohio, Indiana, and Louisiana. The first two could be explained by the immense depopulation of the area, and i have no idea about Louisiana, my guess is that Katrina drove away a lot of people and set the area in swaths of debt. Drawing partisan lines on through this map is pretty stupid because it just doesn't have much to back it. It really doesn't even look that way really unless you kinda squint

K41 -Knex, Mapping, and More! : Actually Hawaii had the lowest ($84)

NinHawk : What's with the unnecessary eerie music??

Brandon M : I like how the map is only unblurred for 11 out of the 90 seconds in this video. Good job guys, great info

Aaron Misener : This 👏is👏what👏I 👏subscribed👏for👌👌👌

CNN : I was too distracted by the music to actually pay attention to the video.

JM Flores : #evergreenstate

Alejandro Pina : But DC isn't a state...

Byron Thomas : The music is eerie,try something different.

Juan Zuniga : Hmm why am I not surprised with california

Tomkar 01 : This doesn't show my state

Anton Borysenko : idiotic info-graphic - i could not see the hole map up to 30 sec till the end

Cody Moore : Wow the background music is terrible

Spartan Spar : This video conflicts itself. When they brought up Hawaii ( 0:18 ) it said $84 but when they said D.C. ( 0:51 ) got you the least it was only $85. And on the map D.C. is ranked the highest. ( 1:24 )

Daniel Treto : Indiana squad. turn up. #15 best dollar.

Ra Ro : The minimum wage is the reason for these fluctuations. In ohio people make less, so, the local economy makes up for it by selling things for less money. If the minimum wage went up so would the price of items and then you would see "the value of 100 bucks" go down. Basically my point is that this video is extremely misleading and if you do move to a place that the 100 dollar bill is "worth more" expect your hourly wage to be lower. It all evens out. We are all slaves in modem times. We are literally given what we need to survive, just like slaves. Only difference is that we aren't forced to live on our plantations. We willingly accept it and think we are "free" because we live in a dwelling not on our owner's land. The only way to stop this is if we all stop working for hourly wages, and specifically for these million/billion/trillion dollars corporations. It would have to be an organized nation wide strike. I'm surprised nobody else realizes this..

123 123 : In my State? What if I dont live in America

James Eisert : What the hell is with that music? Also, they don't really show the map much do they? It's all blurred out.

SnakeJ : Came from Worldstar. I read the title as worth of $100 of weed in US. 😆

user 15481 : Do another one with the dollar amounts

wealthy black man : Economic BS!! They did not account for the law enforcement factor in the state of Georgia that minimizes that figure down to approximately 2 dollars...yup 100 dollars is worth 2 bucks in the military police state of Georgia!

Gabriel Hudson : What a surprise....all the states with less value. Are all democrat ran liberal hell holes.

Ratz Buddie : How does DC's $85 magically become less than Hawaii's $84? Either can't follow their own data or they want to portray DC worse

KOFFIN nails : Funny were it worth the most is were we make the less

Burdy : Moral of the video: BI is believes liberal states are the best.

Lucas Johnson : So THATS why the politicians keep thinking they need to steal my money! It all makes sense now! =P

Falo : I live in Florida and after this hurricane is gonna be the new #51.

Lost Guardian : Can you please do one with US Territories too?

JetStream195 : Why the freaky music thought?
