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?

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.

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.

VallejoZooted : Hawaii was $84 Fact check

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.

Mahad Shaikh : 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.

infamous420 hip hop : This made me want to leave NYC even more. Love my city but shit to expensive, especially since gentrification is causing all these hipster fucks to move in.

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

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

Jim Bertido : Basically red states are poor as fuck & so yes the dollar is worth more. Meanwhile the blue states are wealthier & make more $ & maintain a higher quality of living, more skilled jobs, higher education, btr Healthcare etc.

NiftyTheLynx : One word: socialism

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

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

Never Lucky m8 : I live in the Netherlands.

Roblox King Production : I m in the uk England is my city Or England is my state

Paula Mais : Am I the only one who knows that this is bullshit?

Omega Effect : Finally something good about living in MS I guess.

K41 : Actually Hawaii had the lowest ($84)

Mark jackson : NOW DO BITCOIN

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. 😆

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

JM Flores : #evergreenstate

wild reed : Dumbest fkin study ever...

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

xREZxTITANx : Funny how the liberals try and save face for the inflation in their states by comparing Red States to African countries. I can promise that we have all of the first world amenities, (Air-Conditioned houses, lighting, plumbing, heating, etc.) and luxuries that you'd find anywhere else. Keep that in mind before you spread your ignorance about how 'poor' Red States are.

BATMAN : The states where $100 are worth more have barely any jobs and are boring as hell

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

Cody Moore : Wow the background music is terrible

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

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

Juan Zuniga : Hmm why am I not surprised with california

Tomkar 01 : This doesn't show my state

Psychlops 924 : People here are acting like lower purchasing power has something to do with higher standard of living. It doesn't. It has everything to do with inflation. All of the states on here with progressive fiscal policies, such as higher minimum wage, create more inflation, making it harder for everyone there to buy goods. I would like to see this on a city by city basis rather than a state by state one, to see how place like NYC, LA, Denver and Seattle compare to Dallas, New Orleans and Phoenix. And if you could somehow compare that to rural vs city, that'd be even more intuitive I think.

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

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

toontownlegomaster : Wow finally you live up to your name

Gee Willickers : I call BS! Your forgot to subtract taxes and government counterfeiting inflation. $1 hasn't been $1 since the Fed was created last century. Like a new car leaving the lot, your dollar loses value before you even get it, and continues to lose value as you hold it. Buy Bitcoin.

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

Chris Weeks : Okay what’s with this stupid music

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..

bepriceless : Why not show the map and what the actual number is, instead of what rank they come in?  Why make it harder to understand?  Silly.  Waste of time, don't watch it.

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

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