Alternate View of Obama’s $819 billion Stimulus Package

Posted to Economics, Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

OK, so we saw CreditLoan’s representation of Obama’s stimulus package. Here’s Washington Post’s take on the breakdown with a combination of bar charts, bubbles, and a stacked graph chart for time – and the numbers seem to all add up correctly. I don’t like the bubbles that look like dangling ornaments though. CreditLoan’s is more readable, but maybe that has to do with the Post’s version being made for print and the other made for online. What do you think – which version works best for you?
