Listen To The Story

Here's a bit of trivia that maybe only the host of a business program can love: A map, from a cloud computing company called Broadview Networks, that lists the biggest company by revenue in each of the 50 states.

My favorites? 

In Vermont, the Keurig Green Mountain company, of coffee fame.

Utah, the Huntsman Corporation, of Jon Huntsman 2012 GOP presidential candidate's family.

And Nebraska...c'mon...any guesses? Berkshire Hathaway... of Warren Buffett fame.
