Transparency as Economic Stimulus

February 18, 2009 - by Donny Shaw

Interesting thoughts from Evan Ratcliff at Wired on how open government data (i.e. in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) can have a stimulative effect on the economy.

It follows that the more governments adhere to open data principles, the more stimulative transparency will be.
