Topic: O2. Development Planning and Policy P1. Capitalist Systems


Status:
completed Project


This project examines the composition and evolution of fiscal policy in MENA countries since the 1970s. It seeks to understand the external, structural, and political factors behind the evolution of fiscal policy, as well as the political economic consequences of these choices. This assessment covers the size of government, how it is financed, and the composition of expenditure, revenue, and debt. It also evaluates the extent to which these trends correspond to the various political economy stories used to characterize the past and the lead up to the uprising.
