Earlier this year, the Hoover Institution (at Stanford) introduced a cool new website allowing anyone to learn more about the fiscal condition of the United States government.
It’s called America Off-Balance. The front page isn’t exactly filled with good news. It is titled “America is Facing a Fiscal Crisis.”
If you go to that page, and just click on the middle of the page, nothing happens. Then, when you start scrolling down with the wheel on your mouse, the bad news starts coming.
Underneath the front page, there are significant learning materials available, and a page with a running series of articles from scholars there.
You can read a press release from the Hoover Institution about this new website here.
