A Decade of Tax and Benefit Reforms in Sweden -Effects on Labour Supply, Welfare and Inequality
Sweden has experienced a sequence of tax and benefit reforms during the last decade. In this paper, the authors evaluate these reforms from labor supply, welfare, and inequality points of view. They depart from a household labor supply model. Simulation of the model reveals that tax and benefit reforms have led to a considerable reduction of the excess burden. Regarding social welfare and inequality, the authors show that the results depend to a large extent on the income inequality measure and the measure of social welfare as well as the income concept (household disposable income or money metric utility).
