The IGC is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by showcasing our most transformational growth ideas from the past decade. Running until December 2019, each week will focus on a key component of economic growth. This week focuses on designing effective taxation systems.

Government revenue is the foundation of the state and equitable growth. Developing countries typically collect much less tax revenue than developed countries, giving them less resources to deliver public services. The IGC aims to identify optimal tax policies and tools that overcome challenges to compliance and administration.
