Papers from Asian Development Bank

Abstract: This study seeks to discern whether the current distribution of income determines the evolution of future income distribution and economic growth through fiscal policy. Fiscal policy consists of transfer payments or an income tax. Fiscal policy is determined by the level of development, distribution of income, and degree of political franchise.
