Abstract

The question of whether financial markets should be taxed or not has been extensively debated. In this study, the gradual rise in public taxation of the Stockholm Stock Exchange during the first half of the 20th century is examined and evaluated. Our empirical findings focusing on trading volume and volatility show that transaction taxes caused substantial crowding out of trading activity and led to lower asset prices. Hence, some support is given to the proponents of a more cautious financial market taxation.
