Montevideo, Uruguay—At an August 16 meeting, the government of Uruguay took part in a public forum, during which economic experts presented research on social justice and the impact of Latin America’s tax practices. The event sparked discussion among panelists about the role of tax policies in creating economic inequality. Speaking on Uruguay’s experience, the Director of the Tax Collection Agency and the Minister of Labor of Uruguay recounted how their country’s decade of expansion was being bolstered by tax policies that sought to lower debt and unemployment and decrease poverty.
