Budget Hero

This is a perfect example of how exploring an issue through play can make great journalism.

Check out the link and find out all about the US federal budget. Usually this is a fiercely complex topic, with reams and reams of spreadsheets – a general all around snore-fest. It’s one of those stories that’s important, but difficult to get into. Not any more. As Ian Bogost said, Budget Hero could have more info on the impact that budget choices have on individuals – this would really hammer home the point. But altogether I think this one really scores.
