The 2014 Universe of Public Expenditures

INESS released an English version of The 2014 Universe of Public Expenditures, a poster with a graphical representation of all public expenditures financed by taxes and contributions. It enables one to understand the relationships among the individual items of public administration. It is a useful aid in illuminating the basic financial flows between citizen and state as well as among individual state institutions. The relative level of expenditure in each field is reflected in the sizes of the circles, making it possible to easily compare the dimensions of the specific areas in which politicians have decided to use our money. Not only the poster provides actual numbers, it also shows year-over-year changes in individual expenditures, thus demonstrating the priorities of the government.

The poster also contains information about public revenues and public debt.

It can be found here (English) or here (Slovak) or ordered as a high quality laminated paper poster at .

The Universe of Public Expenditures is a visual feature at The Price of the State (SVK and ENG version).
