Abstract

Fiscal reform in developing countries has succeeded in increasing tax revenue from indirect taxes. Here it is assumed that those taxes will be transferred backwards to�wages rather than forward to prices. This implies a certain degree of flexibility of�nominal wages, which, however is not so unrealistic in informal sectors. Under these�assumptions it is shown how some simple fiscal policies, such as a balanced budget�expansion or an adjustment to a shock to the current account, work. The adjustment to a�shock to the current account under the rule of balanced budget appears particularly�painful under these assumptions.
