Death and Taxes Poster 2010 – 50% Off for FlowingData Readers

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

Jess Bachman of WallStats just released his annual Death and Taxes Poster for 2010. For those unfamiliar, the poster is a graphical breakdown of the United States federal budget.

Death and Taxes is more than just numbers. It is a uniquely revealing look at our national priorities, that fluctuate yearly, according to the wishes of the President, the power of Congress, and the will of the people. Thousands of pages of raw data have been boiled down to one poster that provides the most open and accessible record of our nations' spending than ever before. If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything in the poster. "Death and Taxes" is an essential poster for any responsible citizen or information junkie.

It's particularly interesting this year, because there's a new president in the White House. Not only that, but there were many changes because of the economic downturn. So this year's poster is arguably the most relevant of the set.

Check out the zoomable version of the poster below:

Lucky for you Jess has provided a 50% discount to FlowingData readers on two or more posters. Just enter 'flowingdata' as your discount code at checkout. Get one for yourself and give the other to a friend. She will thank you.

  • this stuff is quite good and makes for an intersting poster to hang around, but i was wondering that while the government spending is faily well documented are there examples of corporates who use infographics to explain their income / expenses. any decent examples?
