IMF Fiscal Monitor: Curbing Corruption
This report discusses fiscal policies to prepare for the next downturn and foster long-term inclusive growth by adapting to changing demographics, advancing technology, and deepening global integration. It also covers recent fiscal developments and the fiscal outlook in advanced economies, emerging markets, and low-income developing countries; recent trends in government debt and analysis of changes in fiscal balances, revenue, and spending; and potential fiscal risks.
The report takes on in-depth look at how corruption impacts government policies and operations, the fiscal costs, and how fiscal institutions can help fight corruption. One clear result of the report is that curbing corruption would deliver an additional US$1 trillion in tax revenues annually across the world – money that could support much needed investments in health, education and infrastructure.Get more information about the report, read the report by chapters or download the full report on the website of the International Monetary Fond.
