The way in which government revenue is affected by financial repression is studied. Financial repression refers to interest-rate restrictions in the domestic market and capital-flow restrictions in the international market. The revenue that results from repression is found by multiplying the difference between the domestic and foreign funds costs with the domestic stock of government debt. The research indicates that financial repression can lead to significant revenue.
