Overview

Managing 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 many 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 policymakers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context.

Editorial Reviews

Asian Pacific Economic Literature

"A welcome addition to the existing literature, providing not only a fascinating set of studies relating to Asian and Pacific countries but also focusing on issues such as fiscal sustainability, which receive only passing mention in public finance textbooks. . . . This is not only a book of interest to academicians, but one that provides important messages for policy makers struggling to address the looming problems of ageing populations and pension and medical care reform."

— Peter S. Heller

Journal of Pension Economics and Finance

"This book offers many new empirical results and useful insights into important aspects of fiscal management in an international perspective. . . . I am particularly taken with the new household-level studies which are producing useful policy implications for fiscal management."

— Satoshi Shimizutani
