Large Fiscal Episodes and Sustainable Development: Some International Evidence

Publication | December 2021

This paper examines episodes of fiscal expansion and tightening in Chile, Poland, South Africa, and Thailand, and their association with sustainable development indicators.

It finds patterns in the linkages between large fiscal episodes and sustainable development outcomes. The findings suggest that domestic resource mobilization should consider differences in the tax base and government expenditure and their linkages with the sustainable development outcomes.
