My suggestion for the White House economic recovery web site

It is all well and good that the White House has a web site for the stimulus package,, but I did not find it immediately helpful in terms of how much money is actually flowing into the U.S. economy. I sent them the following suggestion:

What is missing and really needed is a classic thermometer that shows the amount of stimulus funding that has actually been disbursed or spent by each agency and is actually out there in the economy.

There should be a daily log listing the agency, specific program, and amounts for daily disbursements and expenditures into the economy above the agency/program baseline budget that is directly attributable to the ARRA stimulus spending.

It will be interesting to see if they actually can tell when each dollar of ARRA money is disbursed or spent.

In any case, I at least gave them some useful feedback.
