Subsidyscope Overview

  • January 23, 2009
Subsidyscope is a new initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts that aims to make government subsidies more transparent to the public and policymakers through the development of a comprehensive online database of all federal subsidies.  By aggregating information across sectors of the economy, Subsidyscope hopes to inform the debate over the creation of new subsidies and the efficacy of existing ones in a non-partisan manner.
