Taxes in a simple wealth distribution model by inelastically scattering particles
AbstractIn this work we use an inelastic scattering process of particles to propose a model able to reproduce the salient features of the wealth distribution in an economy by including taxes to each trading process and redistributing that collected among the population according to a given criterion. Additionally, we show that different optimal levels of taxes may exist depending on the redistribution criterion.
