About this item

This report identifies ways fiscal policies can help governments achieve redistributive objectives to tackle inequality around the world, in both developing and advanced economies, while minimizing potential trade-offs between efficiency and equity. It focuses on income inequality, but includes measures of wealth inequality, inequality of opportunity, and gender inequality. It concentrates on tax rates at the top of the income distribution, the introduction of a universal basic income, and the role of public spending on education and health, discussing recent trends in income inequality, including inequality between and within countries; the redistributive role of fiscal policies over recent decades and the importance of appropriate design to minimize efficiency costs; and the three components of fiscal redistribution: progressivity of income taxation, universal basic income, and public spending policies for achieving more equitable education and health outcomes and their importance for addressing income inequality.
