Unemployment insurance and redistributive taxation
AbstractThis paper studies the simultaneous determination of the socially optimal levels of unemployment insurance, income taxation and experience rating. Earlier work uses models in which there is no point for government intervention. There is only a rationale for state unemployment insurance when there is also a need for redistributive taxation.
