The Federal Fiscal Issue in One Chart

WSJ.com: Real Time Economics

The federal budget is a confusing document. It has all the raw material needed to illuminate the president's priorities and the nation's fiscal health, but it's not always presented in a way that enhances public understanding. And once the allies, critics and the Congressional Budget Office get into the act, it doesn't always get clearer. There are dueling baselines — statistical attempts to show what results CURRENT policy would produce to highlight proposed changes in policy. And then there's the inside-the-Beltway budget geek jargon — "discretionary spending " and "entitlements" and "appropriations" and "authorizations" and "points of order."

So Eugene Steuerle, a veteran budget watcher now at the Urban Institute, took a stab at putting the president's budget in a different perspective. Instead of distinguishing between programs that are on auto-pilot like Medicare and programs that are subject to annual congressional spending bills, he put them on one chart.

He then compared President Barack Obama's estimate for current year (fiscal 2011) spending, known in Washington as "outlays," to what would be spent in fiscal 2016 if the president's proposals were accepted by Congress, and adjusted for inflation (but not for the aging of the population or the fact that health care costs are rising faster than other things or anything else.)

The bottom line: Spending on interest, Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security go up – a lot. Spending on nearly everything else goes down.

C. E. Steuerle and S. Rennane, the Urban Institute
Data from OMB, FY2012 Budget. Medicare outlays assume Sustainable Growth Rate relief is continued through 2016. Other Mandatory includes unemployment insurance, SNAP, other income security programs, as well as disaster costs and funds reimbursed from TARP. Discretionary non-Defense includes, among others, most education funds, and energy.

"A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vul tures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?"

MSNBC's Maddow Reports Internet Spoof Story as Fact (Larry O'Connor/Breitbart.tv)

memeorandum Firehose

Larry O'Connor / Breitbart.tv:
MSNBC's Maddow Reports Internet Spoof Story as Fact  —  In their zeal to slam Sarah Palin, Christians and conservatives, MSNBC and Rachel Maddow reported a story from a satire website called ChristWire.org.  It doesn't take too much research to discover that the site is like "The Onion" and everything on it is a lampoon-style story.

What Matters: What is the city of the future?

As the demand for urban space grows, the world is responding with new kinds of cities: smart cities, instant cities, and aerotropoli that are all but attached to airports. What Matters posts dispatches from around the world on these new urban forms.

Visit the site this week to explore the following new essays:

Saskia Sassen, professor of sociology at Columbia University:
Talking back to your intelligent city

Richard Dobbs, a director of the McKinsey Global Institute, and Jaana Remes, a senior fellow at MGI:
What's the biggest limit on city growth? (Hint: it's not steel or cement)

Greg Lindsay and John Kasarda, authors of Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next:
At home in the aerotropolis

Jim Fortune, elevator engineer and head of Fortune Consultants:
Going up: Vertical transportation in the 21st century

Sean C. S. Chiao, executive vice president, China, for AECOM:
Planning China's megacities


Plus:

• In case you missed them, read last month's essays on this topic, including: The Debate Zone—as the world urbanizes, will the most successful cities result from top-down planning or bottom-up innovation? Stan Gale, chairman of Gale International, and Alfredo Brillembourg, founding director of Urban Think Tank, weigh in.

• Two weeks ago, we asked readers from around the world to post photos of their cities. View a slideshow of the highlights, and contribute to it by sending your photos for inclusion.

• Finally, click on the "test your knowlege" icon in the left column to take a brief interactive quiz on urbanization and the world's cities.
