Redistribution and the marginal Cost of Public Funds

  • Sandmo, A.

Abstract

Discussion of the marginal cost of public funds with distortionary taxation are often cast in the framework of a one-consumer economy, while the main justification of distortionay taxes is that they are needed for distribution. This paper analyzes the issue in a model with heterogeneous consumers and a linear income tax, focusing on the tradeoff between labour market distortions and the redistribution from high-wage to low-wage workers.
