While debate continues in Washington over how to reduce national debt, many Americans remain confused about underlying budget issues. To help make the budget accessible and understandable, the Wilson Center’s Science Technology and Innovation Program (STIP) and the Public Insight Network team at American Public Media have developed Budget Hero 2.0, a computer game that allows anyone the opportunity to test and recognize the effects of specific budget cuts or expenditures on the federal budget.
This latest version of Budget Hero includes a "Super Hero" badge. Win it by choosing among options being debated by the debt-reduction supercommittee. Click the widget above to start playing!
