Abstract

To study transfers between oil-consuming developed countries and oil-producing developing countries, we use a dynamicdecentralized general-equilibrium model (GEM) with two countries : a rich, altruistic, and resource-poor country (North)and a poor, resource-rich country (South), where resource-owners live alongside impoverished workers. On the one hand,North’s taxation of resource use extracts a portion of South’s mining rents in a distorting manner. On the other hand, Northdistributes foreign aid to improve the situation of South’s poor. The coexistence of these transfers in opposite directionsillustrates the interference between North’s tax and international-aid policies. We analyze the interference and suggest acontractual solution based on coordination between the two sets of policies.
