Government Spending

See the World Through Stimulus-Colored Glasses

|

Wondering where all that stimulus money is going? Now you can see for yourself, infographic-style, which bits of your daily life are afloat in government moolah as you walk the mean streets of America.

The makers of the app say:

Layar is an application that overlays your view of the real world with waypoints representing your favorite coffee place, the movie theatre you're trying to find, or in this case, where some of that $787 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going. If you have an iPhone 3GS or Android device you can install the Layar app for free and then search for "recovery" or "sunlight" within Layar to find this layer. The layer works best near large cities where you are most likely to find recovery contracts.
