Title: Between-Group Transfers and Poverty-Reducing Tax Reforms
Authors: Makdissi, Paul

Abstract: In this paper, we propose the conception of within-group CD-Curve, to apprehend the impact of indirect tax reforms on truncated distributions of consumption expenditures. This confers decision makers the ability to perform within-group transfers as well as between-group transfers to reduce poverty in particular groups or to obtain an overall poverty alleviation. Between-group transfers are implemented in order to introduce a fairness element into the indirect tax framework, allowing to test for the robustness of reducing-tax reforms, for any order of stochastic dominance.
