Maryland's economy

According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Maryland’s real gross domestic product didn’t change last year. Like, zero. And in case you were wondering, most other states’ GDPs went up, at least a little bit.

Maryland’s economy beat out only Alaska and Washington, D.C, both of which saw declines in 2013. North Dakota — it must be the oil! — topped the list with a 9.7 percent uptick.

But don’t worry. We can spin this. Maryland: the, um, steadiest economy in the United States!
