Taxation and the Sources of Growth: Estimates from United States Multinational Corporations

Contents:

Author Info

  • Cummins, J.G.

Abstract

Capital income tax policy affects investment by the parent and affiliates of multinational corporations (MNCs). In a model in which technical advances are emobodied in new capital, investment will translate directly into productivity gains. In this paper, I use this framework to guide the growth accounting decomposition and clarify the relationship between capital growth and overall firm growth.
