Abstract:This supplement of the 'Journal of African Economies' features AERC plenary papers on the theme: 'Public Finance: Tax and Expenditure Reforms in Africa', presented during the June 2014 biannual research workshop. Africa is growing genuinely but the growth has not been sufficiently inclusive. For some countries, there is coexistence of high growth and rising inequality and/or poverty, posing serious challenges for policy makers. Contributions: Tax and expenditure reforms in Africa: an overview (Ramos E. Mabugu and Witness Simbanegavi); Fiscal reforms and public investment in Africa (Christopher Adam and David Bevan); Tax evasion, the provision of public infrastructure and growth: a general equilibrium approach to two very different countries, Egypt and Mauritius (Andrew Feltenstein, Nour Abdul-Razzak, Jeffrey Condon, and Biplab Kumar Datta); Pro-poor tax policy changes in South Africa: potential and limitations (Ramos E. Mabugu, Ismael Fofana, and Margaret R. Chitiga-Mabugu). [ASC Leiden abstract]
