So, this infographic was my ultimate inspiration for my final project. It offers four ways to slice Obama’s proposed budget, and it came out in February.
I really like the way this is initially presented. It’s polished, informative and really demands your attention. With that said, I think there is a lot that could be improved on. My biggest issue with it is that the context is missing. Why are the biggest increases the biggest? And why are some departments being focused on for cuts? This graphic answers the ‘what’, but doesn’t give much deeper explanation. It’d be nice if you could click on each bubble to see more info.
