Assessing the Equity of Governments' Fiscal Policies with Application to the Philippines
Hyun Hwa Son
Public Finance = Finances publiques, 1998, vol. 53, issue 3-4, 452-69
This paper proposes a methodology to evaluate a government's fiscal policy from the equity point of view. This method may help governments assess whether their public expenditures are pro-poor or not. Similarly, the proposed methodology can be a tool to review government's tax policies. The idea of assessing government's public policy is empirically applied to the Philippines' Annual Poverty Indicator Survey.
