Government Spending: Why Do We Spend the Way We Do?

Students look at definitions for the three categories of federal spending and using the internet locate examples of each. They then categorize a list of expenditures as government purchases or transfer payments. Given federal budget data, students analyze the pattern of change that has occurred over the last 40 years. Working in groups, they use the internet to ascertain what events altered government spending decisions.
