Public finance in underdeveloped countries by A. R Prest( Book )

THE TITLE Public Finance in Undeveloped Countries is open to many possible interpretations and so it would be as well to clarify our own at the beginning. First at all, Public Finance can, at one extreme, be taken to cover the general subject of Central Government economic planning-a discussion of the merits and demerits of having a plan on the Indian model, ofr instance, or the most appropriate way of constructing such a policy framework. Another possibility would be to deal with purely descriptive matters-which sorts of taxes and expenditures one finds in underveloped countries, why the institutional arrangements differ and so on. These two illustrations will be sufficient to show that it is quite impossible to cover all aspects of public finance in the course of a short survey and so we must be quite deliberately and openly selective. To thos end we shall not have a great deal to say about the optimum size and composition of Government expenditures, the merits of detailed development planning and so on. We shall rather take the present position of Government expenditures as we find it in various countries, and inquire into some of the difficulties which arise in financing it, the relative merits of the various possible taxes and so on

This volume raises the question whether the benefits of the present UK system are outweighed by the costs.

After a detailed analysis of the income tax system of the UK, the USA, Canada and Sweden, the authors conclude in favour of a phased introduction of self-assessment into the UK, together with the simplification of allowances and extensive computerisation of tax administration
