Título: Fiscal monitor : curbing corruption
Publicación: Washington, DC : Fondo Monetario Internacional, 2019Descripción física: 134 p.Notas: Sumario: Over the past decade, fiscal policy has focused primarily on macroeconomic stabilization in response to shocks, notably the global financial crisis. Less emphasis has been placed on reforms to foster longterm inclusive growth by adapting to changing demographics, advancing technology, and deepening global integration. In many countries, public and private debt hover near historical peaks, long-term growth and development prospects are uninspiring, and inequality remains striking. With global growth slowing and uncertainty rising, fiscal policy should prepare for possible downturnsbalancing growth and sustainability objectiveswhile also putting more emphasis on reforms to adapt to a fast-changing global economy. The latter will require inclusive and growth-friendly budget recomposition to upgrade tax, social spending, and active labor market policies, as well as investment in infrastructure for better public service delivery. Greater international cooperation is also needed to address multilateral issues, including corporate taxation, climate change, corruption, and, more generally, to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Materia / lugar / evento: Política fiscal Finanzas internacionales Perspectivas económicas Datos macroeconómicos Indicadores económicos Crecimiento económico Estadísticas Autores secundarios: Fondo Monetario Internacional
