Sweden's welfare state can the bumblebee keep flying? by Subhash Madhav Thakur( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 859 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
Labor market institutions and public regulation( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 218 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."--BOOK JACKET
The taxation of petroleum and minerals : principles, problems and practice by Philip Daniel( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are few areas of economic policy-making in which the returns to good decisions are so high-and the punishment of bad decisions so cruel-as in the management of natural resource wealth. Rich endowments of oil, gas and minerals have set some countries on courses of sustained and robust prosperity; but they have left others riddled with corruption and persistent poverty, with little of lasting value to show for squandered wealth. And amongst the most important of these decisions are those relating to the tax treatment of oil, gas and minerals. This book will be of interest to Economics postgraduates and researchers working on resource issues, as well as professionals working on taxation of oil, gas and minerals/mining
Changing customs : challenges and strategies for the reform of customs administration by Michael Keen( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 141 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
