Administering Fiscal Regimes for Extract ive Industries: A Handbook
by Jack Calder
Effective administration of government tax revenues is essential if countries
are to enjoy the full benefit of their natural resources. This handbook explains
administrative challenges arising from natural resource revenues. It discusses
how natural resource fiscal regimes can be designed to meet appropriate policy
objectives without creating unnecessary administrative complexity. It also
provides a useful framework for both governments and their advisers to assess
and strengthen resource revenue administra tion.

Getting Energy Prices Right
edited by Ian W. H. Parry, Dirk Heine, Eliza Lis, and Shanjun Li
Energy taxes can produce substantial environmental and revenue benefits.
This book shows how the major environmental damages from energy can be
quantified for different countries and used to design an efficient set of energy
taxes. The results, which are illustrated for more than 150 countries, suggest
there is pervasive mispricing of energy acro ss developed and developing
countries alike. At a global level, implementing efficient energy prices would
reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 23 percent and fossil-fuel air pollution
deaths by 63 percent.

Energy Subsidy Reform: Lessons and Implications
edited by Benedict Clements, David Coady, Stefania Fabrizio, Sanjeev Gupta,
Trevor Alleyne, and Carlo Sdralevich
Energy subsidies have wide-ranging economic consequences. Although they are
aimed at protecting consumers, subsidies aggravate fiscal imbalances, crowd
out priority public spending, and depress private investment. This book provides
the most comprehensive estimates of energy subsidies currently available for
176 countries. It also presents an analysis of “how to do” energy subsidy reform,
drawing on insights from 22 country case studies undertaken by the IMF staff
and analyses carried out by other institutions.
