The EITC Disincentive: A Reply to Dr. Hilary Hoynes
In the September issue Dr. Hilary Hoynes replies to my paper â€œThe EITC Disincentive: The Effect on Hours Worked of the Phase-out of the Earned Income Tax Credit.â€ She criticizes my remarks about a figure in Eissa and Hoynes 2005, my downplaying the income effect and my not including a control variable in my own investigation. I reply to the substantial criticisms.
