Unpacking the stimulus

In economics, Obama, stimulus on February 10, 2009 at 12:25 PM

NPR’s Planet Money website has a great series of short articles illustrated with maps of the USA showing how the stimulus money will be spent, which states will benefit the most, etc. Well worth reading the analysis and checking out the graphics. Clearly, the package will not provide equal benefits for all but who gets more of a particular aspect of the package might surprise you. The website also includes links to the datasets used to create the maps.
