“Commitment to Equity” website is launched

Visit www.commitmentoequity.org and learn about how taxation and social spending impact inequality and poverty in Latin America.
The Commitment to Equity (CEQ) is a joint project of CIPR and the Department of Economics at Tulane University and the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, DC. Directed by Nora Lustig and Peter Hakim, the CEQ uses tax and benefit incidence analysis to assess the impact of fiscal policy on inequality, poverty and access to social services. The Commitment to Equity Assessments presented here will prove a useful source for scholars and students. They can also provide a roadmap for governments, multilateral institutions, and nongovernmental organizations in their efforts to build more equitable societies.
