Abstract

This paper concerns the implications of progressive labor income taxation for wage determination in dynamic general equilibrium. The main purpose is to analyze the general equilibrium effects of increased tax progressivity in terms of the responses in the real wage rate, employment, the capital stock, output and consumption. Among the results, we find that increased tax progressivity increases the real wage rate and decreases employment under both union and competitive wage formation.
