Mr. Campos' project analyzes the effects of fiscal reform in Mexico. He will use the Quadratic Almost Ideal Demand System (QUAIDS) econometric model to simulate an indirect tax reform and observe its effects on the expenditure and welfare of households and on government revenues. The project's ultimate aim is to develop software that could be used to analyze the consequences of any indirect tax reform. The software could be used by policy makers not only in Mexico, but also in countries with similar economic and political conditions.
