Two articles were recently published in academic journals by researchers with the Commitment to Equity (CEQ). Sean Higgins and Nora Lustig published Can a poverty-reducing and progressive tax and transfer system hurt the poor? in the Journal of Development Economics. Higgins and Lustig, along with Timothy Smeeding, also published Comparing the Incidence of Taxes and Social Spending in Brazil and the United States in Review of Income and Wealth.

Three other articles are currently submitted to journals and awaiting publication.

  • “Fiscal Incidence in Tanzania” by Stephen Younger, Flora Myamba and Kenneth Mdadila.
  • “Fiscal Incidence and Poverty Reduction: Evidence from Tunisia” by Abebe Shimeles, Ahmed Moummi, Nizar Jouini and Nora Lustig.
  • “The Role of Fiscal Policy in Fighting Poverty and Reducing Inequality in Iran” by Ali Enami, Nora Lustic and A. Taqdiri.

CEQ is a joint project of CIPR, the Department of Economics at Tulane University and the Inter-American Dialogue.
