Taxation, growth, and resource extraction: A general equilibrium approach

Contents:

Author Info

  • Sinn, Hans-Werner

Abstract

This paper deals with taxation in a framework which is a synthesis between the neoclassical growth model, augmented by a (separable) sector of resource-extracting firms, and the Fisherian intertemporal general equilibrium model: market forces bring about the neoclassical optimal growth path under laissez faire, but taxation may result in welfare-reducing distortions. The taxes studied comprise ad valorem, capital-income, and capital-gains taxes, where the tax revenue is assumed to be redistributed in a lump-sum fashion. Particular attention is paid to the second-best problem of whether capital-income taxation should be supplemented by capitalgains taxation.
