The welfare loss from a capital income tax
AbstractA decomposition of the welfare loss from a capital income tax into its two components: the intertemporal (consuming today versus tomorrow) and the within-period or static (consuming durable versus nondurable goods). Its calculations, which use a calibrated life-cycle model with a representative consumer, suggest that ignoring the static distortion may lead to substantial underestimation of the total welfare loss.
