Want to play French Budget Minister?

This page in:

Because if you do, now you can:

French Budget Minister Jean-Francois Cope has announced the launch of an online game for the country's taxpayers to have a go at balancing the books. The game, called Cyberbudget, will launch in May and will let users manage 300bn euros ($373bn)… It allows each person to get familiar with how [the budget] functions. In this game each French person can pretend they are the budget minister and make decisions to understand how much each [ministry's] budget costs, education spending, military spending, how it's all organised and see what kind of decision we can make when we want to cut taxes.

Seems the idea is to convince people how hard the job is. A better idea would be to track and use any collective wisdom that might emerge. (Tnx Tim)
