A Value Added Tax in an Oligopolistic Economy


  • Richard Damania

    (School of Economics, University of Adelaide)


This paper identifies a new mechanism through which value added taxes may influence the degree of competition in oligapolistic markets. The analysis is based on an oligopoly in which firms interact over an indefinite period of time and hence tacitly collude.
