Taxation, inflation, and interest rates by Vito Tanzi( )

22 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and German and held by 1,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nine studies that comprise the book open up a new and exciting area of research in monetary-fiscal links in both closed and open economies. They integrate the theoretical effects of tax policies on interest rates and demand for money with those on exchange rates and international capital movements and analyze the impact of tax treatments of interest income and expense previling in industrial countries on macroeconomic variables. They deal, therefore, with issues that are of mutual interest to fiscal economists, monetary economists, and specialists in international trade and finance. As interest rates in industrial countries have been higher and more varaible in recent years than at any time over recent decades, these studies should be of interest to both policymakers and academicians

17 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Russian and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The IMF has been a major participant in the challenge of transforming many African, Asian, and European countries from centrally planned to market economies.

25 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collapse of central economic planning in many countries and the breakup of the Soviet Union have put into disarray systems of government revenues and expenditures in these countries. This collection of 16 papers, edited by Vito Tanzi, analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of fiscal policies under the old system of central planning and suggest ways to revitalize those policies in the newly emerging market economies
Economic policy & equity( )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reflecting its concern with the social implications of economic reform, as well as with the quality of macroeconomic adjustment and growth, the IMF held a conference in June 1998 on economic policy and equity, the proceedings of which are presented in this volume. This conference followed up on one the IMF had held in 1995 on income distribution and sustainable growth. Since this time, experiences with globalization as well as the financial crisis that has affected several countries have deepened the IMF's concern about the need to find the proper responses to equity issues
Roads to nowhere : how corruption in public investment hurts growth by Vito Tanzi( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper contends that such corruption increases the number of capital projects undertaken and tends to enlarge their size and complexity. The result is that, paradoxically, some public investment can end up reducing a country's growth because, even though the share of public investment in gross domestic product (the total of all goods and services produced in a country in a given year) may have risen, the average productivity of the investment has dropped
Taxation in an integrating world by Vito Tanzi( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, part of the Brookings Integrating National Economies series, Vito Tanzi assesses the need for, and obstacles to, cooperation among countries. He addresses key questions about the effects of internationalization on current and developing tax systems. Tanzi encourages policymakers and tax experts to think globally as they establish new policies. He calls for greater tax harmonization and coordination across national borders and explores the viability of an international institution that would establish and enforce rules for taxation. This institution, similar to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade for trade issues and the International Monetary Fund for general macroeconomic issues, would provide much needed surveillance over the developments in tax systems. Tanzi argues that the creation of such an institution would encourage countries to follow common policies and would support the efforts of international economic integration
Reforming China's Public finances by Ehtisham Ahmad( )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, China has taken steps to promote sustainable growth, with greater reliance on market mechanisms and institutions that facilitate orderly macroeconomic controls. The International Monetary Fund has been assisting the authorities in this endeavor. IMF participation has been particularly active in various fiscal areas such as tax policy, tax administration, budget management processes and the budget law, and fiscal relations between different levels of government
Managing fiscal decentralization( )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth of interest in fiscal decentralization has meant that there has been something of a rush to enshrine this in policy - The World Bank has reported that about 70 countries see this as a major part of their development strategy. This book critically examines the case for decentralization. This collection of contributions comes from a worldwide team of experts, including Albert Breton, Piero Giarda and Anwar Shah. After analysing fiscal decentralization in general, the book goes on to look at intriguing case studies of various regions around the world including: The European Union; Hungary and Slovakia; Russia and China; and Asia and Africa. This comprehensive guide to fiscal decentralization should be of great interest to academics, researchers and policy makers
Government versus markets : the changing economic role of the state by Vito Tanzi( Book )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vito Tanzi offers a truly comprehensive treatment of the economic role of the state in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries from a historical and world perspective. The book addresses the fundamental question of what governments should do, or have attempted to do, in economic activities in past and recent periods. It also speculates on what they are likely or may be forced to do in future years. Although other recent titles in economics deal with normative theories, public choice theories, welfare state analysis, social protection, and the like, no other book has the same breadth or depth specifically on the state's viable economic role. The author occupies a unique position in global public finance, having served for nearly three decades as a leading fiscal administrator for the International Monetary Fund, financial adviser to 80 countries, and active economic theorist. The investigation assembles a large set of statistical information that should prove useful to policy-makers and scholars in the perennial discussion of government's optimal economic roles. It will become an essential reference work on the analytical borders between the market and the state, and on what a reasonable "exit strategy" from the current fiscal crises should be"--

After a detailed account of reform experiences in several countries and the public debate regarding government reform, the study closes with an outlook on the future role of the state, a period when globalization may require and people may want "leaner" but not "meaner" states."--Jacket

Inflation and the personal income tax : an international perspective by Vito Tanzi( Book )

23 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inflation distorts income taxes in many ways, but primarily by redistributing the tax burden among taxpayers. This study analyses in detail the effects of inflation on income tax systems in many countries. It examines some of the more important distortions of income tax systems caused by inflation and discusses possible corrective measures, ranging from automatic adjustments (indexation) to ad hoc responses. These corrective measures are compared with the actual experiences of many countries that have pursued policies aimed at neutralizing the effects of inflation. By treating the problem of inflation and income taxes in a comprehensive manner and from an international perspective, this book fills an important gap in the income tax literature and will prove valuable to professional economists, policy makers concerned with tax problems, tax lawyers and accountants
