Tax systems have changed considerably in the past three decades. These fundamental changes have been the result of economic globalization, new political stances, and also of developments in public finance thought. The chapters in this volume offer a critical review of those changes from the perspectives of tax theory, policy and tax administration practice, and the political economy of taxation. The authors also consider what sort of reforms are worth undertaking in tax policy design, tax administration and enforcement, and the assignment of sub-national taxes. In this volume, renowned public finance scholars analyze the state of taxes in the world, including tax systems in OECD countries as well as the current trends and types of taxation, such as direct versus indirect taxation, personal income tax, corporate income tax, value-added tax and others tried and re-tried all over the world amidst political realities which make public finance - and the institutions used to administer it - of critical importance to emerging and to established economies. Economists in academia, government, and business along with tax lawyers and policymakers will find this volume an invaluable resource.

`The book discusses many of the issues facing tax systems and attempts to reform them, and it will be of considerable value both to policymakers and to students of taxation policy.' -- Citizen's Income
`If you're a tax specialist, whether lawyer, economist academic, or government policymaker, taxation policy, you'll find The Elgar Guide to Tax Systems of considerable value and interest, particularly if your work involves cross-border or global tax issues. . . Each of the papers is structured in much the same way, with an introduction, conclusion and typically a lengthy bibliography at the end for further reading and research. And there is a detailed index at the back, plus a really useful list of abbreviations to facilitate ease of use. As taxation policy can be crucial to political survival in so many instances, this book of collective wisdom, we've no doubt, will soon become a valued addition to the well stocked tax specialist's library.' -- Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine
