Where Does the Money Go?

Whether for school-related or personal interest, you can now see at a glance which banks have received federal bailout funds--and how much--under TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Program approved by Congress. ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit organization that produces investigative journalism in the public interest, has created a user-friendly "Show Me the TARP Money" page, with a map and a running count of where this money has gone.

Also check out ProPublica's Stimulus Plan chart to view and compare the types of tax relief and expenditures proposed in the House-passed version of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act now being considered in Congress. Take advantage of ProPublica's creative coverage, graphics, and mashups to keep up-to-date on economic recovery plans.
