Abstract

Dado el gran potencial que tendría el uso intensivo y extendido de los modelos de micro-simulación en América Latina, el Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo (PNUD) y el Centro Internacional de Investigaciones para el Desarrollo de Canadá (IDRC por sus siglas en inglés) decidieron auspiciar desde mediados de 2009 el proyecto Fiscalidad para el Desarrollo Incluyente (FDI), conocido también en inglés como Fiscal Schemes for Inclusive Development. Con duración de dos años, el proyecto FDI (o FSID por sus siglas en inglés) contempla de manera pionera el desarrollo de modelos de micro-simulación para cinco países latinoamericanos: Brasil, Chile, Guatemala, México y Uruguay. Este libro presenta los resultados de la primera etapa del proyecto, cuando cada equipo se dio a la tarea de detallar con mucha amplitud los sistemas de impuestos y prestaciones que prevalecían en su país durante el año para el cual se tenían las más recientes bases de datos confiables.
