# Introducing Open Spending: "Where Does My Money Go?" Goes Global
The "Where Does My Money Go?" project helps UK taxpayers to better
understand the public purse. It uses a range of interactive tools to
enable users to explore and visually represent complex datasets.
Internationally it is widely cited as a shining example of the reuse
of open government data. Building on this, Open Spending will aim to
provide a flexible range of open source tools to represent spending
data from around the world. This will bring new opportunities for
cross border comparative analysis of spending information - for
example, comparing spending in different areas, or matching
beneficiaries of public funds in different countries.
