China’s Stimulus Package Pie Chart

A handy graphic of China’s stimulus plan allocation:

UPDATE: The above chart represents the allocation of funds after this week’s “rebalancing” of the stimulus package.  The chart below, for comparison purposes, shows the original allocation amounts and percentages:

Notice that the category “Sustainable Development” has taken a hit, but “Technolgy Advances” (which presumably will include some spending for clean tech) has received a big increase.

UPDATE 2: Thanks to Yaleguy, here is a pie chart for the US stimulus package, although as he notes it is two months old.  It’s a little hard to compare apples to apples, but it’s probably the best we are going to get.

    Here’s a comparable chart for the US, though it’s almost 2 months old.

    Thanks Yaleguy! As you can see, I’ve updated the post with the chart you found.

    cool .. now we need the experts, which country has more pork in their plan … in which country will more bucks/yuan reach the ground … and maybe with a bit of comparison, given wage/expenses/productivity differences, who will get more done with less bucks?
