Tax and Benefit Reform in Central and Eastern Europe
AbstractFiscal reform is central to the process of transforming a Soviet-type economy to a market economy, for with the emergence of a significant private sector, the boundaries between the public and private sectors needs to be more sharply drawn. The paper draws lessons from the experience of the Visegrád countries (Hungary, Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republics) in tax and benefit reform.
