Wednesday QuizDay

New feature, alright!  Our first quiz.  Please note also that there is a nifty poll over there on the right side of the page.

This week’s challenge is knowing the economic prowess of states in the Middle East.  Is Syria’s economy bigger or smaller than Algeria’s?  Actually, thinking by rank is probably the best way to succeed at this quiz.  Start with the biggest and smallest economies, and work towards the middle.  The answers will be posted as the first comment.  For some perspective, a few non-Middle East economies:

United States – $14.6 Trillion          China – $5.7 Trillion          Mexico – $1 Trillion          Austria – $355 Billion          Dominican Republic – $51 Billion

Good Luck, if you do well, post how many you got right!
