Editor Info

  • (IFS), Institute for Fiscal Studies

Additional information is available for the following registered editor(s):


The goal of the Mirrlees Review has been to identify what makes a good tax system for an open developed economy in the 21st century and to suggest how the UK tax system could be reformed to move in that direction. As an integral part of the Review, this volume brings together thirteen studies of different dimensions of tax design, plus associated commentaries. These were commissioned from IFS researchers and other international experts, to be of interest and value in their own right, as well as to provide inspiration for the final report of the Review, which is published as a separate volume, Tax by Design. The Commission's work was directed by: Tim Besley Richard Blundell Malcolm Gammie James Poterba The Commission's editorial team: Stuart Adam Stephen Bond Robert Chote Paul Johnson Gareth Myles Contributors to this volume - Stuart Adam, Institute for Fiscal Studies James Alt, Harvard University and Institute for Fiscal Studies Julian Alworth, Said Business School, Oxford University Orazio Attanasio, Institute for Fiscal Studies and University College London Alan Auerbach, University of California, Berkeley and Institute for Fiscal Studies James Banks, Institute for Fiscal Studies and University College London Richard Bird, University of Toronto Robin Boadway, Queen's University, Ontario and Institute for Fiscal Studies Mike Brewer, Institute for Fiscal Studies James Browne, Institute for Fiscal Studies Emma Chamberlain, 5 Stone Buildings, STEP, CIOT Sijbren Cnossen, University of Maastricht Claire Crawford, Institute for Fiscal Studies Ian Crawford, University of Oxford Helmuth Cremer, IDEI, University of Toulouse I Michael P.
