‘IT’S TIME TO EVEN IT UP’

 Bangkok, 20 January 2015: Asia’s remarkable success story in the fight against poverty is at risk as rising inequality across the region now threatens security and growth according to a new study by international agency Oxfam.

“Asia is now at a crossroads. It could continue with the existing policies and risk political, economic, social, and environmental sustainability or it could make a turnaround by addressing inequality more seriously in all aspects to sustain its economic progress,” said Lilian Mercado, Asia Deputy Regional Director, Campaigns and Policy.

 Nguồn: Trần Ngọc Anh (ĐH Indiana) – Vũ Hoàng Dương (Oxfam)- Ngân sách là tiền của dân, thì đương nhiên phải công khai với người chủ của nó, từ bước dự toán đến quyết toán. Ngoài ra, dân phải có quyền góp ý, theo dõi thực hiện, kiểm tra từng bước trong quy trình ngân sách.

Trước hết, hãy xem chúng ta đang ở đâu so với thế giới. Có một số chuẩn mực về công khai ngân sách, ví dụ như Chỉ số Công khai Ngân sách (OBI), Quy tắc về Minh bạch tài khóa của IMF. Theo OBI, VN được 19/100 điểm, thấp hơn so với điểm trung bình của các nước trên thế giới 43 điểm, và cũng thấp hơn hẳn các nước trong khu vực (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thái Lan và Đông Timo).
