IGC Growth Week 2010 - Domestic Resource Mobilisation and Growth

Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Nadeem ul Haque, Michael Keen, Dr Masihur Rahman, Rama Sithanen, Professor Joel Slemrod
Chair: Professor Tim Besley

Recorded on 22 September 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

To reduce reliance on foreign aid and financial inflows, policymakers across the developing world are seeking to improve domestic resource mobilisation. But doing so effectively and efficiently presents a huge policy challenge. More is at stake, however, than just revenue raising to fund socially valuable investments. Effective fiscal systems are a core element of state building and a barometer of state legitimacy and effectiveness.
