Changing customs : challenges and strategies for the reform of customs administration by International Monetary Fund ( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 140 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
Labor market institutions and public regulation ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The six studies collected in this CESifo volume analyse the sometimes unpredictable effects of public regulation on the labour market. Examining a wide range of policy interventionsfrom subsidised employment to an increased tax on capital and using a variety of methodologies to analyse them, these contributions by leading scholars of the European labour market will advance the policy debate over regulation at a time of serious labour market problems in Europe and elsewhere. The first three chapters of this book present empirical findings, comparing the effects of job training and subsidised employment on the Swedish labour market, analysing the effect of extended unemployment benefits on unemployment duration for older Austrian workers, and examining poor labour market performance in Spain even after policy reforms. The following chapters take a more theoretical approach, applying the analytical tools of theory to policy issues. These three studies examine the general equilibrium repercussions of public support for both basic and higher education, develop an efficiency wage model to analyse mandated severance pay, and compare different kinds of redistribution to low-skill workers financed by an increased tax on capital

Rent taxes and royalties in designing fiscal regimes for non-renewable resources by Robin W Boadway ( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fundamental issues in designing any fiscal regime for non-renewable resources is the balance between rent taxes and royalties. This paper reviews the core issues that arise, in terms of both efficient rent extraction and correcting various market failures. Issues of asymmetric information, for instance, can rationalize using both instruments. The paper also shows that, even though they effectively involve the choice of distinct parameters at several dates, rent taxes are not subject to the time consistency problem that is central to the extractive industries, but royalties are (although time consistent royalty policy is efficient conditional on initial resource stocks)

Coordinating climate and trade policies Pareto efficiency and the role of border tax adjustments by Michael Keen ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper explores the role of trade instruments in globally efficient climate policies, focusing on the central issue of whether some form of border tax adjustment (BTA) is warranted when carbon prices differ internationally. It shows that tariff policy has a role in easing cross-country distributional concerns that can make non-uniform carbon pricing efficient and, more particularly, that Pareto-efficiency requires a form of BTA when carbon taxes in some countries are constrained, a special case being identified in which this has the simple structure envisaged in practical policy discusions
'Fiscal devaluation' and fiscal consolidation the VAT in troubled times by Ruud A. de Mooij ( )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper focuses on two core tax design issues that arise in addressing current fiscal challenges It first explores the idea, prominent in troubled Eurozone countries, of a "fiscal devaluation:' shifting from social contributions to the VAT as a way to mimic a nominal devaluation. Empirical evidence is presented which suggests that in Eurozone countries this may indeed improve the trade balance quite sizably in the short-run, though, as theory predicts, the effects eventually disappear. The paper then assesses the wider scope for VAT reform in meeting fiscal consolidation needs, developing and beginning to apply a methodology for finding additional VAT revenue in ways less distortionary and fairer than further raising the standard rate

Some international issues in commodity taxation by Michael Keen ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper reviews issues and evidence concerning tax-motivated, cross-border commodity transactions. A distinction is drawn between "arbitrage trades" (driven by cross-country differences in tax rates) and "tax not paid" transactions (motivated by the opportunity to pay no tax at all on transactions with international aspects). Assessment of the severity of the associated policy problems faces the difficulty that the observed extent of cross-border transactions conveys no information on the induced inefficiency that the possibility of such transactions may generate. Given the difficulty of securing coordination of national tax policies, much of the emphasis in dealing with these problems in the coming years is likely to be on administrative cooperation
Domestic taxes and international trade some evidence by Michael Keen ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The effects on trade performance of corporate taxes and the value-added tax (VAT) continue to excite controversy but have received little empirical attention. This paper uses panel data for OECD countries from 1967 to 2003 to examine the effects of these taxes on export performance, paying particular attention to the potentially complex dynamic effects to which theory points. It finds that increased reliance on VAT revenue tends to be associated with a sharp reduction in net exports, which quickly fades. This may reflect unrelated movements in consumption, and our preferred specifications point to no trade effects of the VAT in either the short or the long run. Our results also point, however, to powerful and complex effects from the corporate tax, the pattern of which is as theory would predict from a source-based tax of this kind. Increases in corporate taxation-whether measured by revenues or the statutory rate-are associated with sharp short-run increases in net exports (consistent with induced capital flows abroad); these are then subsequently and quickly reversed (consistent with increased income from investments abroad), leaving an increase in net exports that converges to zero
