The benefit-incidence of public spending: the Caribbean experience
This paper shows that public spending on basic services, to wit, primary and secondary education and basic health care benefit the poor; while the non-poor are the principal beneficiaries of tertiary and education subsidies and hospital spending. The evidence also shows that expenditures on infrastructure spending in the Caribbean benefit the non-poor disproportionately more than the poor. Copyright © 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
