  • Taxes in America amount to about 30 percent of national income or roughly $12,000 per man, woman, and child. Now, that’s a lot of money that could otherwise be spent on privately provided goods and services that people value and enjoy, so it’s no surprise that Americans pay very close attention to whether we are getting our money’s worth and whether our own tax bill is too high

  • Another concern over raising taxes on high-income households is that it might influence decisions to start businesses. If increased taxes reduce returns to investing in small business ventures, high-income individuals might be less likely to take risks, and entrepreneurial activity might decline. Some studies conclude that higher taxes reduce entrepreneurship, but a greater number conclude the opposite.

  • The United States Constitution established the world’s first federal system encompassing an economic union and a political union whose central characteristic is dual sovereignty with Congress possess- ing delegated powers and states possessing reserved or residual powers. A federal system automatically raises questions pertaining to the nature of appropriate relations between the national government and state gov- ernments at the boundary lines of their respective authority and between sister states each possessing equal powers.

  • Many countries are likely to have to raise taxes as part of fiscal consolidation over the next few years, but how is this best done – by broadening the tax base or raising tax rates? This study is intended to provide economic analysis that helps answer such questions. As the OECD Secretary-General remarked at the G20 Summit held last June in Toronto, fiscal consolidation should be as growth-friendly as possible. In general tax base-broadening reforms are identified as growth-oriented reforms.

  • A final way banks raise funds in the money market is through repurchase agreements (RPs). An RP is a sale of securities with a simultaneous agreement by the seller to repurchase them at a later date. (For the lender—that is, the buyer of the securities in such a transaction—the agreement is often called a reverse RP.) In effect this agreement (when properly executed) is a short-term collateralized loan. Most RPs involve U.S. government securities or securities issued by government-sponsored enterprises. Banks are active participants on the borrowing side of the RP market. ...

  • The case-studies marked an increasingly complex aid environment, with new stakeholders and partnerships for development, and a number of mechanisms seeking to coordinate donor contributions in sectoral and national planning processes. In addition to the sector-wide approaches and poverty-reduction strategy papers that were the focus of country office engagement in 2005, there is an increasing emphasis on reporting and strategizing in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular MDGs 4, 5A and 5B.

  • In our experiments, 42 MICAz nodes were used. The experimentswere conductedwith multiple randomly generated layouts under two different scenarios: (i) an open parking lot, and (ii) an indoor office. In each sce- nario, two types of experiments were conducted: Fixed Single Sender and Round Robin Sender. In the Fixed Single Sender experiment, the sender was placed in the center of the topology, while the other 41 nodes were randomly deployed as receivers. The sender broadcasted a packet in every 200ms. Each packet was identified by a sequence number.

  • It has often proven valuable to have the proposed audit task plan reviewed by an experienced auditor who is outside the audit team. Such reviews may raise issues that were not considered by the originator of the plan and that suggest the need to modify the plan in material ways. In an “audit office” with a hierarchical structure, such a review is typically required by office policy and is usually carried out in two stages by supervisory levels above that of audit team leader. In a more decentralised SAI, such as some “courts...

  • Raising capital gains taxes will lower the return on some types of assets, and could decrease investment. If investors decrease stock holdings, and businesses rely on financing from in-state investors, then a state’s economy could grow more slowly. But a debate on capital gains taxes in the 1980s and 1990s inspired a considerable body of research, which ultimately found that these taxes have little impact on long-term investment.

  • Income tax rates are at the center of many recent policy debates over taxes. Some policymakers argue that raising tax rates, especially on higher income taxpayers, to increase tax revenues is part of the solution for long-term debt reduction. For example, in the 112th Congress the Senate passed the Middle Class Tax Cut (S. 3412), which would allow the 2001 and 2003 Bush-era tax cuts to expire for taxpayers with income over $250,000 ($200,000 for single taxpayers). Other policymakers argue that maintaining low tax rates is necessary to foster economic growth.

  • Very low interest rates in major currencies have raised concerns over international credit flows to robustly growing economies in Asia. This paper examines three components of international credit and highlights several of the policy challenges that arise in constraining such credit. Our empirical findings suggest that international credit enables domestic credit booms in emerging markets. Furthermore, we demonstrate that higher levels of international credit on the eve of a crisis are associated with larger subsequent contractions in overall credit and real output.

  • The wealthy now have more disposable income than at any time in history. Proponents of raising taxes on affluent households to fund services suggest that these households should pay higher taxes now because they have benefitted so much from tax cuts in recent years. Saving jobs Taxing high incomes to pay for state services may also be one of the best approaches available to states to limit economic harm in a high unemployment, slow-growth environment.

  • Also, since most job holders do useful work, job creation is tied to wealth creation—for the simple reason that when more people are put to work, more work gets done. This point requires a bit of explaining, as an exception comes to mind right away. Certainly it is possible for a given company to get more work done without adding jobs, or even while eliminating jobs. That is called raising productivity, and we as a society are constantly coming up with ways to raise productivity. For instance, this paper you are reading did not need to be...

  • This is important for two reasons. First, insofar as trade is driving GDP, it will not be negatively impacted by a fiscal adjustment. The demand from outside of the country will not be reduced by a country’s decision to raise taxes or cut spending. The second reason it is important is that the fiscal adjustment can actually boost trade. A lower deficit can lead to a decline in interest rates, which can in turn be expected to lead to a lower value for the country’s currency relative to that of its trading partners. This raises the final important...

  • In the fall of 1929, the market value of all shares listed on the New York Stock Exchange fell by 30 percent. Many analysts then and now take the view that stocks were then overvalued and the stock market was in need of a correction. Irving Fisher argued that the fundamentals were strong and the stock market was undervalued. In this paper, we estimate the fundamental value of corporate equity in 1929 using data on stocks of productive capital and tax rates as in McGrattan and Prescott (2000, 2001) and compare it to actual stock valuations. We find that the stock market in 1929 did...

  • Monetary policy in advanced economies, implemented through very low interest rates and large-scale asset purchases, has led to concerns in emerging markets about a surge in global liquidity. The main worry is that monetary ease in the major currencies could amplify capital flows into emerging market economies when risk is “on” and capital outflows when risk is “off”. Concerns arise about the risk that capital inflows might ease monetary conditions or that outflows might destabilise the financial system.

  • Contrary to the belief of many people, the health, safety and socioeconomic problems attributable to alcohol can be effectively reduced. Many evidence-based alcohol policies and prevention programmes are shown to work. One of the most effective is raising alcohol prices by raising taxes. This has the added benefi t of generating increased revenues. A recent analysis of 112 studies on the effects of alcohol tax increases affi rmed that when taxes go up, drinking goes down, including among problem drinkers and youth.
