Abstract

El éxito de un pacto fiscal se mide por el grado en que incorpore a los diversos grupos sociales en las discusiones, el cumplimiento y la vigilancia de ciertos acuerdos sobre la forma como se financia el Estado y se utilizan los recursos públicos. Partiendo de los factores políticos que pueden explicar las estructuras fiscales de América Latina, este artículo muestra la necesidad de alcanzar pactos fiscales, discute los incentivos que influyen en su viabilidad y propone prioridades de política fiscal y de reforma institucional para mejorar sus posibilidades de éxito.
