Abstract
This paper analyses the intermediary role of the technical bodies that support the
use of budgetary and financial information by central government politicians in
Portugal. The main findings show that information brokers are playing a central
role in preparing this information in a credible, simple and understandable way.
However, even if not intentionally, the information they present can be biased.
Politicians need to be aware that the information brokers they rely on may not be
giving them ‘neutral’ information.
