Fiscal cliffs to the left, debt ceilings to the right, and while the middle class is getting squeezed, subsidies and favorable tax laws help giant corporations avoid their fair share of taxes, often without contributing to economic growth.
In other words, now is the time for BizVizz.
Inspired by the PBS documentary, As Goes Janesville by filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein, this new corporate accountability app and grassroots movement wants to put important tax, subsidy, and political donations data at your fingertips. We want to empower a coalition of citizens, journalists, and socially-conscious shoppers to learn, share, and act. Will you join us?
You pay your fair share. Why shouldn't they?
As Goes Janesville will broadcast on Independent Lens on February 4, 2013. The BizVizz app is scheduled to launch the same day. Thank you for your support!

Our app is launching on Feb 4 to coincide with the re-broadcast of As Goes Janesville on Independent Lens (a national PBS series). The film and the app both are engaged in the important work on increasing corporate transparency and accountability. They give the narrative and the tools for people to get involved. Now more than ever it's important to engage the citizens and help them understand what is REALLY going on when they see Washington debating economics, and how the hidden data affects them.
