Labor market institutions and public regulation( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The six studies collected in this CESifo volume analyze the sometimes unpredictable effects of public regulation on the labor market. Examining a wide range of policy interventions - from subsidized employment to an increased tax on capital - and using a variety of methodologies to analyze them, these contributions by leading scholars of the European labor market will advance the policy debate over regulation at a time of serious labor market problems in Europe and elsewhere."--Jacket
Changing customs : challenges and strategies for the reform of customs administration by International Monetary Fund( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, based on the practical experience of the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department, sets out a strategy for successfully modernizing customs administration. The essence is to establish transparent and simple rules and procedures, and to foster voluntary compliance by building a system of self-assessment supported by well designed audit policies. Having set out this strategy--and its benefits--the book discusses in depth what is required in terms of trade policy, valuation procedures, dealing with duty reliefs and exemptions, controlling transit movements, organizational reform, use of new technologies, private sector involvement, and designing incentive systems into an effective customs administration.--Publisher's description

The taxation of petroleum and minerals : principles, problems and practice by Philip Daniel( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oil, gas, and mineral deposits are a substantial part of the wealth of many countries, not least in developing and emerging market economies. Harnessing some part of that wealth for fiscal purposes is critical for economic development: in few areas of economic life are the returns to good policy so large, or mistakes so costly
Fiscal policy to mitigate climate change : a guide for policymakers( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Efforts to control atmospheric accumulations of greenhouse gases that threaten to heat up the planet are in their infancy. Although the IMF is not an environmental organization, environmental issues matter for the organization's mission when they have major implications for macroeconomic performance and fiscal policy. Climate change clearly passes both these tests. This volume provides practical guidelines for the design of fiscal policies (carbon taxes and emissions trading systems with allowance auctions) to reduce greenhouse gases. Not only are these instruments potentially the most effective at exploiting emission reduction opportunities in the near and longer term, but they can also generate for many countries a valuable new source of government revenue. The chapters, written by leading experts, explain the case for fiscal policies over other approaches; how these policies can be implemented; reasonable levels for emissions prices; policies for the forest sector; appropriate policy for developing countries; the most promising fiscal instruments for climate finance; and lessons to be drawn from prior policy experience. This is essential reading for policymakers in finance and environment ministries in developed and developing countries alike, and others grappling with balancing environmental and development concerns

The value-added tax : its causes and consequences by Michael Keen( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Has the VAT proved, as its proponents claim, an especially effective form of taxation? To address this, this paper first shows that a tax innovation-such as the introduction of a VAT- reduces the marginal cost of public funds if and only if it also leads an optimizing government to increase the tax ratio. This leads to the estimation, on a large panel, of a system of equations describing the probability of VAT adoption and the revenue impact of the VAT. The sign of the revenue impact is generally ambiguous, but most countries that have adopted a VAT seem to have gained a more effective tax instrument in doing so
Taxation, bank leverage, and financial crises by Ruud A. de Mooij( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

That most corporate tax systems favor debt over equity finance is now widely recognized as, potentially, amplifying risks to financial stability. This paper makes a first attempt to explore, empirically, the link between this tax bias and the probability of financial crisis. It finds that greater tax bias is associated with significantly higher aggregate bank leverage, and that this in turn is associated with a significantly greater chance of crisis. The implication is that tax bias makes crises much more likely, and, conversely, that the welfare gains from policies to alleviate it can be subs
Base Erosion by Ernesto Crivelli( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International corporate tax issues are now prominent in public debate, most notably with the current G20-OECD project addressing Base Erosion and Profit Shifting ('BEPS'). But, while there is considerable empirical evidence for advanced countries on the cross-country fiscal externalities at the heart of these issues, there is almost none for developing countries. This paper uses panel data for 173 countries over 33 years to explore the magnitude and nature of international fiscal externalities, with a particular focus on developing countries and applying a new method enabling a distinguishing
Sweden's welfare state : can the bumblebee keep flying? by Subhash Madhav Thakur( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sweden has long been viewed as epitomizing a particular approach to economic and social policy. To its advocates, the Swedish welfare state builds on a strong social consensus favoring extensive state intervention to ensure a high quality of life for all Swedes. To its critics, the Swedish system is marked by excessive government intervention and attendant inefficiencies. These contrasting views are captured in imagery used by Prime Minister Göran Persson: "Think of a bumblebee. With its overly heavy body and little wings, supposedly it should not be able to fly--but it does." The Swedish welfare state is the bumblebee that has managed to fly. This book draws on many years of IMF surveillance and policy advice to explain how it has done so, to assess the challenges that the Swedish model faces in the new century, to propose a strategy for dealing with those challenges, and to draw lessons for the many other countries that face similar challenges from globalization and demographics
