With the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act came this brand new website recovery.gov. Last month I somewhat doubted that all the spending would be published there, and I still have reserved feelings about it although it shows where your money is going.
It explains only two bubbles of the act so far but I hope the rest will come soon. I will definitely keep an eye on this website because I want to see how other acts will be explained – whether they will keep explaining them in general like they do with this act or they will be more specific in the future.
I am sure that political scientists, economists, financists and other people would like to be given more specific information about where the taxpayers’ money goes so recovery.gov staff should work on that. Otherwise it won’t make too much of a difference and therefore further efficiency will not be accomplished.
It’s a good start so far though. Thank you, Mr. President!!!
