Inequality and Fiscal Policy
Benedict Clements, Ruud de Mooij, Sanjeev Gupta, and
Michael Keen
“This collection of articles adds greatly to our understanding of the
link between economic performance and inequality, combining theory, econometrics,
and case studies, and looking at both taxes and expenditures. The questions are investigated
in a huge range of circumstances—both developed and developing countries, at the national
and subnational levels. The IMF recognizes that its policies can have huge distributive
consequences and so this book will be important not only for guiding its own work, but
for scholars and policymakers seeking to further enhance our understanding of the
determinants of inequality and devising policies that might reduce it.
—Joseph E. Stiglitz, Profess or, Columbia University
