Author

  • Fullerton, Don
  • Mackie, James B. III

Abstract

Uses a general equilibrium model capable of second-best analysis to investigate the net effects on efficiency of each of these changes in capital income taxation. Emphasizes that recent tax policy decisions were influenced by revenue considerations, distributional effects, and noneconomic objectives.
