A Distortive Wage Tax and a Countervailing Commuting Subsidy
AbstractWithin a second-best duocentric urban economics framework where labor income taxation distorts workplace choices on account of commuting costs, this paper studies a commuting subsidy, which distorts land use. It is shown that a commuting subsidy increases welfare if and only if it shifts labor supply from less to more productive business districts. Copyright � 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc..
