Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia by Takatoshi Ito
Book DescriptionManaging fiscal policy - the revenues and spending of an individual nation - is among the most challenging tasks facing governments. Wealthy countries are constrained by complex regulation and taxation policies, while developing nations often face high inflation and trade taxes. In this volume, esteemed economists Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose, along with other leading experts, examine the problems and challenges facing public finance in East Asian developing countries as well as the United States and Japan. "Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia" explores the inefficient tax systems of developing countries, the relationship between public and private sector economic behavior, and the pressing issue of future obligations that governments have undertaken to provide pensions and health care for their citizens. Featuring both overviews and analyses of the countries discussed, this book will be of value to economists and policy makers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context.
