Public Finance and Development Resource Round-Ups


Posted by Mark Miller[1]

Followers of the IMF’s PFM blog may be interested in the Overseas Development Institute’s recently introduced monthly resources round-up that provides a commentary on the must-reads in the public finance and development world.

These round-ups have three objectives:

  1. To draw attention to some of the major research papers, articles and blogs relevant to people working on questions of public finance and development. As part of our work at ODI, we sift through many of these materials and so hope to serve the public good by sharing those pieces that interest us.
  2. To illustrate the relevance of public finance to other key issues the development community grapples with. Public finance issues often get described in ways that is difficult for a non-specialist audience to understand, but they matter to a whole range of questions on policy and building effective states. Our previous round-ups have looked at how India’s tax policy reforms have reduced internal trade barriers, commented on the impact of the global financial crisis for how finance ministries operated, and drew lessons from recent UK political debates on public-private partnerships for current development financing debates.
  3. To encourage and enliven debate on public finance issues. The round-ups reflect the views of the authors and not everyone will always agree with everything we write.  We believe this is a good thing as it encourages critical reflection on research being produced in this area. We would encourage people to comment or get in touch when they disagree.

For those of you interested to receive reminders of these monthly updates, please feel free to contact the current author directly, or keep an eye on the ODI website (www.odi.org) or twitter feed (@ODIDev).
