From the from pen of Ink Witch Venus De Mileage, a tale untold in the telling... THE AVENUE OF REGRETTABLE FAREWELLS is situated beyond a corner as yet unturned. A corner of a street; a street that is, in its mad fusion of brazen modern attitude and ancient architecture, much like any other street that houses shops whose windows offer untold treasures for strangely shaped and even ill-gotten coins. Technically, it might be supposed, the 'street' out of which the 'avenue' runs tributary, is more an avenue than the avenue itself, but where myth and whispers and the aches of hearts govern, there is no place for technicality. And as this avenue, this living graveyard of goodbyes, boasts no postal address and claims no place on any geographical map, it can be named an avenue or a lane or whatsoever it or anyone, for that matter, wishes; for who can dispute the details of that which does not exist for everyone and does not, when it does exist, manifest itself in identical ways in the eyes of the beholders? The avenue, like beauty, is indefinable. Like love, it is intangible. Like death, it is just around a corner as yet unturned.
Taxation in Latin America is largely viewed as a means of generating income to keep the government in business. In recent years, progress has been made towards increasing total revenue, but most countries in the region still lag well behind other countries with similar levels of development. More importantly, Latin American policymakers still largely ignore the potential of taxation to contribute to other important development goals. Yet dependence on consumption taxes such as the VAT and the regressive bent of the personal income tax structure have squandered the opportunity to attack the region's serious income inequality. In addition, the importance of efficiency in taxation has also been underestimated with a proliferation of inefficient ad hoc taxes such as those on bank transactions and exports. Governments have repeatedly missed the chance to influence consumption and production patterns by using taxes to effect relative price changes. More than Revenue aims to provide an up-to-date overview of the current state of taxation in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region, its main reform needs, and possible reform strategies that take into account the likely economic, institutional, and political constraints on the reform process.
