ABSTRACT: Twelve papers, with comments, originally presented at a conference sponsored by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Korea Development Institute and held in South Korea in June 1990, examine the complexities of tax reform in a global economy. Part 1 presents a theoretical basis for considering some important issues of interdependence in tax policy and provides a survey of taxation structures in eight Asian economies: Hong Kong, Indonesia, south Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Part 2 analyzes the political-economic interactions that underlie the tax reforms undertaken in Japan, the United States, South Korea and Taiwan. Part 3 addresses the individual aspects of the linkages between tax structure, economic efficiency, growth, and interdependence. Contributors are mainly economists. Ito is at Hitotsubashi University.
