Summary Whenever governments change policies there will typically be losers. These losers will have made investments of one kind or another predicated on, or even deliberately by, the pre-reform set of policies. Very few policy changes make everybody better off, but rather re-allocate social benefits and costs in different ways. The issue of whether and when to mitigate the costs associated with policy changes is ubiquitous across the policy landscape. This book explores both normative and positive rationales for transition cost mitigation strategies.
Contents Introduction: The places in-between -- Framing the issues : normative discourses, political imperatives -- Public pensions : reconciling fiscal sustainability with intergenerational equity -- Reforming the US home mortgage interest deduction -- Trade liberalization : gradualism, reciprocity, reversibility -- Agricultural supply management : unraveling the transitional gains trap -- Liberalizing immigration policy : the gains and strains of accommodating more and diverse newcomers -- Climate change policy : managing more heat in the world's kitchens -- Institutional reform and development : the perils of utopianism -- Conclusion: Taking transition costs seriously.
