In Search of Lost Revenue : Why Restoring Fiscal Soundness After a Crisis is Harder Than it Looks
Book/Monograph, Created By Masato Miyazaki and Published By INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND in ENGLISH language
This note argues that because fiscal deficit after a crisis owe much to a drop in tax revenues and a sluggish revenue growth, its adjustment has to rely more on revenue augmentation than commonly thought. Cutting extra spending in the wake of the crisis would not balance the book, while a natural growth of tax revenue after the recovery may take a long time before financing the pre-crisis level of expenditure. Faced with unpopular choices, the government may implicitly prefer seeing higher inflation.
