Alternative uses of pre-tax fossil-fuel subsidies per year
PDF File Size: 9.05 MB | Download   
This note performs a series of arithmetic comparisons of the estimated global amount of pre-tax fossil-fuel subsidies (FFSs) distributed per year to offer an understanding of what they cost across the developing world. A first exercise focuses on what is often termed ‘poverty eradication’, which consists of lifting the current incomes of the poor population up to at least the value of the corresponding poverty line. A second exercise looks at how much of basic economic security to protect the livelihoods of the less advantaged groups during the COVID-19 crisis FFSs could pay, for how many people and for how long. Finally, a third exercise compares the amount of FFSs with that required to inoculate the global population against COVID-19.
