You Make Your Budget

Best Make Your Own Budget Badge

Millions and billions don't talk to people. So rather, I wanted to give a chance to everyone to test if the budget's priorities match theirs.
I first ask users to draw on a blank square how they would divide the budget. What would they spend? More money for the environment? Would they subsidize culture? Or fund education?
They can then compare their choices with those of the government. From the differences, they will get a better understanding of the orders of magnitude at stake.
