    It’s often hard to grasp just how much business is made in the oft-maligned Golden State economy. Just look at what the recent release of data on local business activity tells us. When I put countywide outputs measured by GDP math into some geographical perspective, even California’s 11th largest economy — Contra Costa County — has more business value flowing through it than what’s produced in all of New Hampshire or Luxembourg or sold by Pepsico. Let’s start our analysis with the state’s biggest economy, Los Angeles County. Its economic output in 2020 was valued at $659 billion even after shrinking 6.3% in a pandemic-chilled year. By the way, the national economy slipped 3.4% in 2020. Now $659 billion is a big number. How big? 1. Among 3,000 U.S. counties, it’s the largest — easily topping No. 2 Manhattan’s New York County. 2.

Orange: $221 billion, the No. 9 county (just ahead of San Diego County) after shrinking 4.4% in 2020. As a state, it’s 25th between Louisiana and Oregon. As a nation, No. 49 between Portugal and New Zealand. It ranks 10th among U.S. publicly owned firms — between tech’s Alphabet (Google) and medicine’s AmerisourceBergen. San Diego: $208 billion, No. 10 (just ahead of San Francisco County) after shrinking 2.9% in 2020. As a state, No. 27 between South Carolina and Alabama. As a country, No. 50 between New Zealand and Iran. And vs. corporate revenues, it’s 11th between AmerisourceBerge...

    I hope this list helps you understand that for all of the imperfections of California’s business climate, its economy remains a huge collection sum of stuff getting managed, designed, built, shipped and sold. Size says something. And many outsiders would love to have the state’s economic headaches. Jonathan Lansner is the business columnist for the Southern California News Group.
