Reexamination of dynamic efficiency with taxation on land
This paper examines the possibility of overaccumulation of capital in an overlapping generations economy with land. With zero population growth rate, the steady state equilibrium is dynamically efficient. Imposition of property tax on land, however, distorts the arbitrage condition and can generate dynamic inefficiency, whereas a tax on rental incomes or capital gains preserves dynamic efficiency. Even with a positive growth rate in population, property tax can still generate dynamic inefficiency.
