This volume takes an in-depth look at the economic issue of capital flight and outlines strategic methods to address the problem of international tax evasion and bank secrecy. In order to address these issues, the book explores the development prospects of tax evasion governance and identifies obstacles to the efficiency of current tax policies. In order to overcome the capital flight issue, all lines of attack need to be examined, states the author. There is a need to establish responsibility, to set priorities for action that significantly reduces the incentives for capital outflows of this kind, and to seek international consensus. International tax evasion has undermined the credibility of political and administrative systems. This volume lays the foundation for creating an institutional framework that provides transparency of control systems in the face of the guilty roles of tax evasion actors. This requires an effort of economic intelligence that involves mobilizing statistical resources and exploiting them in order to finely identify deviating situations and risk.

The Macroeconomics of Developing Countries provides a comprehensive discussion of the exogenous factors and macroeconomic policies that affect the business cycle, long term growth, and distribution of income in developing countries. It examines countries dependent on natural resources and affected by supply rigidities in agriculture. They also feature dualistic markets, a large informal sector, rapid population growth, a vulnerable export sector, and chronic dependence on a volatile global finance. The Macroeconomics of Developing Countries uses these examples to analyse the impact of stablization and adjustment politices on growth, inequality, and poverty. Despite the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals there is little consensus on how macroeconomic policies can be consistent with these objectives. The Macroeconomics of Developing Countries demonstrates that a critical application of standard models to developing countries can generate erroneous results and induce the adoption of incorrect policy. In order to address this, it discusses the key structural differences between advanced and developing countries in order to justify the construction of alternative models.
