DebateGraph.org: Visualizing the Romney Tax Debate

On the eve of the US Presidential Election DebateGraph.org, co-founded by a former Australian cabinet minister, gives the US electorate a new way to make sense of one of the most contentious issues of the campaign: does the Romney Tax plan compute?

NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What to make of the debate about Mitt Romney's tax plan. Does it add up?

In the Presidential debates both President Obama and Governor Romney cited expert studies to support their cases: study was pitted against study, expert against expert.

How can the electorate make sense of this?

DebateGraph brings a new kind of transparency and rigor to the public debate - beyond simple fact-checking - by creating interactive visualizations that dissect the main studies and get to the heart of the debate: http://debategraph.org/taxdebate.

The dynamic, web-based visualizations make it possible to examine the essence of each claim made by the politicians and experts in detail; for example, Governor Romney's claim that his plan will boost economic growth is mapped in detail here: http://debategraph.org/growth (with a non-Flash version available here: http://debategraph.org/growth_noflash).

The visualizations have been created by DebateGraph co-founder, Peter Baldwin - a former member of the Australian federal cabinet who served on the key committee overseeing federal expenditure.

DebateGraph.org is an award-winning and innovative, web-based tool for visualizing complex debates in public policy - and has been deployed already in open government projects for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the UK Prime Minister's Office and the European Commission.
