ICTD Research In Brief 11

This ICTD Research in Brief is a two-page summary of ICTD Working Paper 21 by Oliver Morrissey, Wilson Prichard and Samantha Torrance. This series is aimed at policy makers, tax administrators, fellow researchers and anyone else who is big on interest and short on time. This paper examines cross country evidence concerning the relationship between aid and taxation using a new dataset complied by the International Centre for Tax and Development (ICTD). It finds no support for the claim that aid reduces tax effort.
