Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. Seattle is the largest city in Washington. And the 15th largest in the United States. It is the fastest-growing major city in the United States. LOCATION The city is situated on an isthmus between Puget Sound (an inlet of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington. Seattle is About 100 miles south of the Canada–United States border. With a land area of 83.9 square miles Seattle is the northernmost city. The Seattle is hilly. The city lies on several hills, including Capitol Hill, First Hill, West Seattle, Beacon Hill, Magnolia, Denny Hill, and Queen Anne. The Kitsap and the Olympic peninsulas along with the Olympic Mountains lie to the west of Puget Sound, while the Cascade Range and Lake Sammamish lie to the east of Lake Washington. HISTORY Englishman George Vancouver mapped the area in the 1790s, but the first white settlers didn't arrive until 1851. Luther Collins led a party of settlers to the mouth of the Duwamish River (in what is today southern Seattle), followed shortly by a party led by the more notable Arthur A. Denny of Chicago, who settled at Alki Point in West Seattle. Confrontations between the original settlers initially flared, only to die out as the groups settled together on the Elliott Bay. The area was then named Seattle by David Maynard, in honor of Chief Si'ahl of the Duwamish & Suquamish tribes, and later officially established as a city in 1869. EDUCATION Seattle had the highest percentage of college and university graduates of any major U.S. city. The city was listed as the most literate of the country's 69 largest cities. Seattle is home to the University of Washington. The 2017 U.S. News & World Report ranked the University of Washington at 11 in the world. Seattle also has a number of smaller private universities including Seattle University and Seattle Pacific University. CLIMATE A common atmosphere of Seattle is that the sky is always grey, rainy, and depressing. Seattle is an excellent place to spend summer. It's warm and comfortable, with little to moderate humidity and temperatures averaging in the upper about 25°C. Because of Seattle's high latitude, the sky is bright from around 4:30AM to 10PM during the summer months, giving you ample daylight for outdoor activities. Due to its location in the Pacific Ring of Fire, Seattle is in a major earthquake zone. ARCHITECTURE Most of the architectural attractions in Seattle are located in the downtown area, easily traversed on foot. Among the highlights are the Central Library, the Columbia Center and the Seattle City Hall. On the south side of Downtown, near Pioneer Square, is the Smith Tower, an Art Deco building which is Seattle's oldest skyscraper and has an observation deck. ECONOMY Seattle's economy is driven by a mix of older industrial companies, and new Internet and technology companies, service and design companies. The Port of Seattle, which also operates Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, is a major gateway for trade with Asia and cruises to Alaska. It also is the 8th largest port in the United States It was ranked as America's No. 1 "smarter city" based on its government policies and green economy. United States' some largest companies, Amazon, coffee chain Starbucks, department store Nordstrom, freight forwarder Expeditors International of Washington are headquartered in Seattle. Aerospace manufacturer Boeing was the largest company based in Seattle Before moving its headquarters to Chicago. The company also has large aircraft manufacturing plants in Seattle. It remains the largest private employer in the Seattle metropolitan area.

Both border the Pacific Ocean and are in the infamous Ring of Fire, an area where lots of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions tend to occur. Both are geographically diverse. And yep, both have similar climates. West of the Cascades, the mountain range that runs north-south through both of the states, gets a lot of rain and the temperature is more moderate, whereas east of the Cascades is much drier with varied temperatures. That’s why you’ll get a picture like this, where you’re in the rainforest, and then drive east five hours and get a picture like this, where you’re basically in the freaking desert. Both are known for wine. Some of the best wine in the world is produced from the grapes grown in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and the Yakima Valley, Walla Walla Valley, and Tri-Cities region of Washington. Speaking of alcohol, both states have a ton of craft beer breweries, although Oregon has more per capita than Washington. Both states have a similar poverty rate and similar income levels, although Washington citizens definitely earn more, on average. The cost of living is similar in both states, overall, which is higher than most of the rest of the country. Both states’ biggest industries are healthcare, retail, and manufacturing, in that order, but you can’t mention the two states without their lumber production. They’ve got mad forests, there, I’m telling you. A lot of people in both Oregon and Washington have lighter skin. Only 4% in Washington and 2% in Oregon consider themselves African American. Around ⅕ of Oregon residents and Washington residents can trace their ancestry to Germany. Many of the earliest residents of European ancestry of both states came via the Oregon Trail, from the Midwest. Marijuana is legal in both states, although the laws that regulate it are less strict in Oregon. Both states lean to the left politically, and typically vote Democratic. Although the Cascades split both states politically, as east of them people tend to be more conservative. Both states are not that religious. Less residents belong to churches in Oregon and Washington than nearly all other states. Both border a foreign country. Washington borders Canada to the north and Oregon borders California to the south. Wait a sec...apparently California is also part of the United States. Scratch that, I’m sorry. So what about their differences? I mean, there are a lot of differences when you nitpick, like the fact that Washington produces much more apples than any other state and Oregon produces more hazelnuts than any other state, but in general terms, there are few major differences. Washington has a lot bigger population, despite being ⅔ the size of Oregon. Washington has around 7.3 million people, and Oregon just 4.1 million. So that’s why Washington gets 12 votes in the Electoral College and Oregon gets just 7. Washington’s population is also growing more quickly than Oregon’s. Washington residents are smarter than Oregon residents. Ok, I joke here, obviously. However, more than 41% of Washington residents have a college degree, whereas just under 38% of Oregon residents have one. Washington doesn’t have an income tax, Oregon has one of the highest income tax rates in the country. That’s quite misleading though, as Washington residents pay some of the highest sales tax rates in the country while Oregon residents pay some of the lowest.

English/Nat U-S Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said on Tuesday the economy surpassed expectations in 1996, but warned the good news on inflation may be ending as low unemployment leads to rising wage demands. In his first testimony to Congress on the state of the economy in six months, Greenspan gave a generally upbeat assessment of recent developments. It was the first time in six months that Alan Greenspan - the U-S Federal Reserve Chairman - has made a statement to the Congress on the economy. He gave the Senate Budget Committee a generally upbeat assessment of the state of the U-S economy on Tuesday. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it's certainly fair to say that the overall performance of the American economy has continued to surpass most forecasters' expectations. The current cyclical upswing is now approaching six years in duration, and the economy has retained considerable vigor, with few signs of imbalances and inflationary tensions that have disrupted past expansions." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman Greenspan faced questions from senators to explain his December comment about "irrational exuberance" that sent financial markets tumbling around the world.. Traders initially feared the central bank would begin raising rates to prick a speculative bubble on Wall Street. Greenspan said the remark was an attempt to explain that the central bank had to look at a variety of things including financial market developments in setting interest rate policies. The Federal chief let it be known the Central Bank is watching out for inflationary pressures spawned by the low unemployment rate. The number of unemployed is at 5.3 percent - the lowest its been for seven years. But he emphasized there is no sign of such pressures in the current recovery, unlike that of the 1980s, when tighter job markets did trigger higher wage and inflation pressures. SOUNDBITE: (English) "In contrast to that earlier period, we have not experienced a broad increase in inflation. In fact, by some important measures of price trends, inflation actually slowed a bit in 1996." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman Greenspan noted that the Federal Reserve Bank, whose primary mission is to keep inflation at bay, must set a forward-looking policy. SOUNDBITE: (Germany) "The question is, of course, where do we go from here? Can we achieve significant gains in real activity while avoiding inflationary excesses? Because monetary policy works with a lag, it is not the conditions prevailing today that are critical, but rather those likely to prevail 6 to 12 months, or even longer, from now." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman He said that widespread job insecurities have kept wage pressures down even though labour markets are tight. SOUNDBITE: (Germany) "Suppressed wage-cost growth as a consequence of job insecurity can be carried only so far. At some point in the future, the trade off of subdued wage growth for job security has to come to an end." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman Some economists viewed Greenspan's comments as a clear signal that the Federal Reserve's next move will be to tighten interest rates, a development that would send up borrowing costs for millions of consumers and businesses.

Washington, D.C. is the capital of the United States of America. Washington, D.C. formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington or D.C. Washington was named after George Washington, first President of the United States and Founding Father. The City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. The city hosts 177 foreign embassies as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, non-profit, lobbying groups, and professional associations. LOCATION Washington, D.C., is located in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. East Coast. Due to the District of Columbia retrocession, the city has a total area of 68.34 square miles. The District is bordered by Montgomery County, Maryland, to the northwest; Prince George's County, Maryland, to the east; and Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, to the south and west. The south bank of the Potomac River forms the District's border with Virginia and has two major tributaries: the Anacostia Riverand Rock Creek. HISTORY On July 9, 1790, Congress passed the Residence Act, which approved the creation of a national capital on the Potomac River. The exact location was to be selected by President George Washington, who signed the bill into law on July 16. Formed from land donated by the states of Maryland and Virginia, the initial shape of the federal district was a square measuring 10 miles (16 km) on each side, totaling 100 square miles. POPULATION Washington is the 20th largest American city by population. Washington has had a significant African American population since the city's foundation. CLIMATE Washington is in the northern part of the humid subtropical climate zone. Winters are usually chilly with light snow, and summers are hot and humid. Winter temperatures average around 38 °F (3 °C) from mid-December to mid-February. Summers are hot and humid with a July daily average of 79.8 °F (26.6 °C). The combination of heat and humidity in the summer brings very frequent thunderstorms, some of which occasionally produce tornadoes in the area Spring and fall are mild to warm. GOVERNMENT All three branches of the U.S. federal government are centered in the District: U.S. Congress (legislative), President (executive), and the U.S. Supreme Court (judicial). A locally elected mayor and a 13 member council have governed the District since 1973. However, Congress maintains supreme authority over the city and may overturn local laws. D.C. residents elect a non-voting, at-large congressional delegate to the House of Representatives, but the District has no representation in the Senate. The District receives three electoral votes in presidential elections. ARCHITECTURE Washington, D.C., is a planned city. In 1791, President Washington commissioned Pierre (Peter) Charles L'Enfant, a French-born architect and city planner, to design the new capital. Washington is home to many national monuments and museums, which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall. By law, Washington's skyline is low and sprawling. The federal Height of Buildings Act of 1910 allows buildings that are no taller than the width of the adjacent street. Washington Monument, is the District's tallest structure. ECONOMY Washington has a growing, diversified economy with an increasing percentage of professional and business service jobs. Many organizations such as law firms, defense contractors, civilian contractors, nonprofit organizations, lobbying firms, trade unions, industry trade groups, and professional associations have their headquarters in or near Washington, D.C., in order to be close to the federal government. Tourism is Washington's second-largest industry with approximately 18.9 million visitors. Washington is one of the most visited cities in the world, with more than 20 million annual tourists. The District also hosts nearly 200 foreign embassies and international organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization of American States,

It’s been that way for so long -- over a hundred years -- that we take it for granted. But how did it happen? There are many answers, of course. One is that the United States values the free market over government control of the economy. But here’s a point that is seldom made: It didn’t begin that way Before the country placed its trust in the free market, it trusted the government to make important business decisions. Or to put it another way, only after the government failed repeatedly to promote economic growth and only after private enterprise succeeded where the government failed did the United States start to develop a world beating economy. Let’s look at three telling examples: In 1808 John Jacob Astor formed the American Fur Company and marketed American furs around the world. Europeans adored beaver hats for their peerless warmth and durability. Astor gave them what they wanted. Instead of leaving the fur business to capable entrepreneurs like Astor, the government decided it wanted to be in on the action. So, it subsidized its own fur company run by a self-promoting government official named Thomas McKenney. McKenney should have won the competition. After all, he had the federal government backing him. But while Astor employed hundreds of people and still made a tidy profit, McKenney’s company lost money every year. Finally, Congress in 1822, came to its senses and ended the subsidies for McKenney and his associates. A similar situation developed in the 1840’s around the telegraph. The telegraph was the first step toward the instant communication we have today. Invented by Samuel Morse, the telegraph transmitted sound – as dots and dashes representing letters of the alphabet. Morse built his first telegraph wire between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore with the help of a government grant. Morse, more of an idealist than businessman, agreed to let the government own and operate the telegraph “in the national interest.” But the government steadily lost money each month it operated the telegraph. During 1845, expenditures for the telegraph exceeded revenue by six-to-one and sometimes by ten-to-one. Seeing no value in the invention, Congress turned the money-loser over to private enterprise. In the hands of entrepreneurs, the business took off. Telegraph promoters showed the press how it could instantly report stories occurring hundreds of miles away. Bankers, stock brokers and insurance companies saw how they could instantly monitor investments near and far. And dozens of other valuable uses were soon discovered. As the quality of service improved, telegraph lines were strung across the country – from 40 miles of wire in 1846 to 23,000 miles in 1852. By the 1860s, the U.S. had a transcontinental telegraph wire. And by the end of that decade entrepreneurs had strung a telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean. Why didn’t the US government profitably use what Morse had invented? Part of the answer is that the incentives for bureaucrats differ sharply from those of entrepreneurs. When government operated the telegraph, Washington bureaucrats received no profits from the messages they sent, and the cash they lost was the taxpayers’, not their own. So government officials had no incentive to improve service, to find new customers, or to expand to more cities. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-america-so-rich

English/Nat U-S financial markets surged into record territory again Tuesday, despite concerns over comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. He was on Capitol Hill to give his first economic report to Congress in six months. Investors were worried that Greenspan was ready to warn of action by "the Fed" to slow the economy by raising interest rates. Greenspan made it clear that the central bank is on alert, but his remarks failed to aggravate fears of an interest rate hike. The news was well received in the markets and at the White House. Greenspan's report to Congress on the U-S economy's performance in 1996 was positive. The powerful Federal Reserve chairman gave a fairly upbeat assessment of recent trends, despite lingering concerns over the impact of inflation on economic growth. SOUNDBITE: "I think it's certainly fair to say that the overall performance of the American economy has continued to surpass most forecasters expectations. The current cyclical upswing is now approaching six years in duration and the economy has retained considerable vigour with few signs of imbalances and inflationary tensions that have disrupted past expansions." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Chairman, Federal Reserve Bank. And despite growing concerns for the impact on America's low jobless rate, and the impact on wage demands, Greenspan said inflation rates appear to be in good shape for now. SOUNDBITE: "But in contrast to that earlier period, we have not experienced a broad increase in inflation. In fact, by some important measures of price trends, inflation actually slowed a bit last year." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Chairman, Federal Reserve Bank Greenspan said that long term trends are also good although some economists have taken his comments as a clear signal that the Federal Reserve's next move will be to tighten interest rates. SOUNDBITE: "And I see no reason why if we can eliminate the long-term inflation that was embodied in the budget beyond the year 2002 that we can find ourselves with fairly dramatic declines, further declines in long-term rates from current level in the not too distant future." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Chairman, Federal Reserve Bank. Republican leaders on the Banking panel gave another hard pitch at efforts to balance the federal budget. Greenspan wasn't shy about his own concerns over the demands a balanced budget amendment to the U-S constitution would place on the president and lawmakers. SOUNDBITE: "I have not been sympathetic to the specific details of most balance budget amendments largely because I think they are very difficult to enforce and I'm terribly much concerned about the issue of employing detailed economic policy within the constitution itself." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Greenspan, Chairman, Federal Reserve Bank. But there is already political momentum on Capital Hill and in the White House for a balanced budget. And President Clinton challenged Republicans Tuesday to meet him halfway, after months of bickering over the need for a workable balanced budget plan. Clinton says he's determined to follow up on his inaugural call for bipartisanship by cutting a deal with Republicans to balance the budget. SOUNDBITE: "To that end on February 6th I will submit a balanced budget. As I said yesterday, we have to do what I will do - maintain our commitment to a balanced budget and the balance of our values." SUPER CAPTION: Bill Clinton, US President U-S stocks continued their robust performance, recovering from early losses over concerns about comments out of Washington. The Dow Jones industrial average was up more than 33 points by afternoon, rising above the 68-hundred mark.

Marijuana is legal to use in the state of Washington, which along with Colorado, is actually one of the first states to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Now, Washington has completely replaced marijuana prohibition with taxation and regulation, and the state’s economy has since prospered, while also helping more of its citizens. In 2016, the state was even ranked #1 for having the fastest-growing economy, when sales of marijuana products in Washington surpassed $200 million, because residents and visitors were, and still are, buying more cannabis than ever. Washington anticipates marijuana sales will continue to grow in the next two years, as the state expects to make $730 million in marijuana money. This number does seem, and certainly is very large, though it’s only part of the $41.3 billion in total revenues expected for the state’s overall budget. Also, even though the marijuana industry is pulling in such numbers for the state, only some of Washington’s marijuana money is available for lawmakers to actually spend. More than 60% of the state’s marijuana money is expected to go toward public health programs, and about $211 million isn’t spoken for, so it will flow into the state general fund. Many argue this money should go to education, though relocating the state’s marijuana money may take time and work, which fortunately the industry has plenty of.

Two bordering states in these United States. Both in the Upper Midwest. Both get very, very, very, very cold in the winter. And are still pretty cold in early spring and late fall as well. But the summers in both states are nice. Except for the crazy terrorist mosquitoes. But yeah, both have humid continental climates. Wisconsin gets a bit more precipitation, though. Both are great. And Great Lakes states. Minnesota borders Lake Superior. Ah, but Wisconsin borders Lake Superior AND Lake Michigan, so does that MAKE it superior? But yeah, both states don’t ever have to worry about having enough access to fresh water. Both have similar populations, although Minnesota is growing at a faster rate. Both states are more heavily populated in the southern portion of the state, with large areas of wilderness covering the northern portions. However, Wisconsin’s population is a bit more spread out throughout the state. About 2/3 of the population of Minnesota lives in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Both have similar size economies. Minnesota’s GDP per capita is higher than Wisconsin’s though. Since the Great Recession, the economies of the two states have been compared a lot, and while there is a debate about the “why,” there is no doubt Minnesota’s economy has grown more. According to Forbes magazine, Minnesota is a better state for business, but both have similar unemployment rates and projected job growth. Wisconsin’s biggest industries include manufacturing, agriculture, and healthcare. And yep, it holds true to its stereotype. It’s the biggest producer of cheese in the country. Boy do they take their cheese seriously. Like, really seriously. There are cheese snobs everywhere man. Anyway, Minnesota’s biggest industries are also manufacturing and agriculture, but also professional and business services. The biggest religion in both states is...you guessed it...Christianity. Minnesota appears to be a bit more religious than Wisconsin. Both states have low crime compared to the rest of the country. You know, because they’re too cold to commit crime there. The majority of residents from both states have ancestors from Europe. While humans have lived in both areas for thousands of years, the first Europeans to settle both were the French.

The economies of Washington’s Indian reservations have grown over the last half-decade, and despite some complaints to the contrary, Washington taxpayers have little to fear and much to gain from American Indian economic development. The evidence points to strong net benefits for Indians and non-Indians alike. Below is a video of how Washington Tribes are helping to build a strong economy in Washington for all.

In which John Green teaches you where American politicians come from. In the beginning, soon after the US constitution was adopted, politics were pretty non-existent. George Washington was elected president with no opposition, everything was new and exciting, and everyone just got along. For several months. Then the contentious debate about the nature of the United States began, and it continues to this day. Washington and his lackey/handler Alexander Hamilton pursued an elitist program of federalism. They attempted to strengthen the central government, create a strong nation-state, and leave less of the governance to the states, They wanted to create debt, encourage manufacturing, and really modernize the new nation/ The opposition, creatively known as the anti-federalists, wanted to build some kind of agrarian pseudo-paradise where every (white) man could have his own farm, and live a free, self-reliant life. The founding father who epitomized this view was Thomas Jefferson. By the time Adams became president, the anti-federalists had gotten the memo about how alienating a name like anti-federalist can be. It's so much more appealing to voters if your party is for something rather than being defined by what you're against, you know? In any case, Jefferson and his acolytes changed their name to the Democratic-Republican Party, which covered a lot of bases, and proceeded to protest nearly everything Adams did. Lest you think this week is all boring politics,you'll be thrilled to hear this episode has a Whiskey Rebellion, a Quasi-War, anti-French sentiment, some controversial treaties, and something called the XYZ Affair, which sounds very exciting. Learn all about it this week with John Green. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Much of America's politics came from debates between democratic republican Thomas Jefferson and federalist Alexander Hamilton: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/alexander-hamilton While Jefferson would go on to become president, Hamilton heavily influenced President George Washington who set many American political ideals in his farewell address that Hamilton helped craft: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/washington-s-farewell-address Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Turn on the captions.

Washington, D.C. "is basically a parasitic economy," says author and Weekly Standard Senior Editor Andrew Ferguson. "It sucks up the money from the rest of the country and puts people to work here." In a recent Time magazine article titled "Bubble on the Potomac," Ferguson argues that D.C.-area residents are growing ever richer at the expense of the rest of the country, which has created a cultural disconnect that results in bad laws. Ferguson sat down with ReasonTV Correspondent Kennedy to discuss his article, and the various ways in which D.C.'s riches are hurting the nation. Ferguson is also the author of Crazy U: One Dad's Crash Course in Getting His Kid Into College and Land of Lincoln: Adventures in Abe's America. For more on those books and the author, visit http://www.andrewfergusonbooks.com/. Approximately 4:50 minutes. Camera by Jim Epstein, Meredith Bragg and Joshua Swain. Produced by Bragg.
