Three Theorems on Inflation Taxes and Marginal Employment Subsidies
AbstractThe paper studies the micro-economics of inflation taxes and marginal employment subsidies. It proves under very weak assumptions (i) an inflation tax will reduce the long-run equilibrium wage or price and (ii) that a marginal employment subsidy will raise the long-run equilibrium employment level. The theorems are illustrated with examples. The paper also proves (iii) that in special circumstances a tax on inflation is exactly equilivalent to a marginal employment subsidy.
