Chats in the Stacks: Gustavo Flores-Macías on The Political Economy of Taxation in Latin America

Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Olin Library, Room 107
Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

It’s been said that there’s nothing more certain than death and taxes. But what factors shape the evolution of taxes and tax policies, and what gives rise to disparities in taxation policy, compliance, and enforcement?

To answer these and other questions, Gustavo Flores-Macías, the associate vice provost for international affairs and an associate professor in the Department of Government, will discuss his new edited volume The Political Economy of Taxation in Latin America (Cambridge University Press, 2019). In this Chats in the Stacks talk, he will explain how tax policies and tax enforcement in Latin America have been influenced by state capacity, public opinion, natural resources, interest groups, ideology, and other factors.

This book talk is sponsored by Olin Library. Light refreshments will be served.
