Here are some additional resources related to the agencies that shape the federal budget and a project that explores the recent history of the budget.
- "Slaying the Dragon of Debt"
- "'Slaying the Dragon of Debt' is a research project by the Regional Oral History Office of The Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. The first year of the project was funded under the auspices of the Shorenstein Program on Politics, Policy, and Values."
- The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget
- "The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget is a bipartisan, non-profit organization committed to educating the public about issues that have significant fiscal policy impact. The Committee is made up of some of the nation's leading budget experts including many of the past Chairmen and Directors of the Budget Committees, the Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Management and Budget, the Government Accountability Office, and the Federal Reserve Board."
- Office of Budget Management
- "The core mission of OMB is to serve the President of the United States in implementing his vision across the Executive Branch. OMB is the largest component of the Executive Office of the President. It reports directly to the President and helps a wide range of executive departments and agencies across the Federal Government to implement the commitments and priorities of the President."
- Congressional Budget Office
- "Since 1975, CBO has produced independent analyses of budgetary and economic issues to support the Congressional budget process. Each year, the agency’s economists and budget analysts produce dozens of reports and hundreds of cost estimates for proposed legislation. CBO is strictly nonpartisan; conducts objective, impartial analysis; and hires its employees solely on the basis of professional competence without regard to political affiliation. CBO does not make policy recommendations, and each report and cost estimate summarizes the methodology underlying the analysis."
