Many books have been published about various aspects of transition economies in the last decade and a half. However, most of them either have not addressed public finance at all, or have devoted only a chapter or two to the subject. This volume assembles a stellar group of experts to address the current issues in their fields. Topics include bureaucracy, corruption and tax compliance; public finance in developing economies; taxation in numerous countries and developing areas.

Much has been written about the economic and political problems of countries that are in the process of changing from centrally planned systems to market systems. Most studies have focused on the economic, legal, political and sociological problems these economies have had to face during the transition period. However, not much has been written about the dramatic changes that have to be made to the accounting and financial system of a transition economy. This book was written to help fill that gap. Taxation and Public Finance in Transition and Developing Economies is the third in a series to examine accounting and financial system reform in transition economies. The first book used Russia as a case study. The second volume in the series examined some additional aspects of the reform in Russia and also looked at the accounting and financial system reform efforts that are being made in Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Armenia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
The present volume examines taxation and public finance in transition and developing economies. It is divided into three parts. Part 1 consists of four general studies on various aspects of tax compliance, corruption, budget efficiency and fiscal policy. Part 2 includes nine comparative studies of various aspects of public finance. Part 3 consists of 23 country and regional studies of countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.
