Performance Maps–They can say a thousand words in one picture

Have you ever wanted to cut the budgets of your local or federal government?  Well in the U.K. you can!   I love this performance map because it quickly layouts the government spending by large departments.  From this, you can quickly see where the money is going.  Go ahead and click on a colored box and then cut by a certain percentage.  Done!  I just balanced the budget of the U.K.   If it was only that easy…  Smile

Enjoy, Patrick
