Marco Fanno's Tax Incidence Theory: A Formal Exposition
Marco Fanno's contributions to the theory of supply at joint cost and the theory of demand for substitute goods contain some original analyses of tax incidence, based on a "less partial" application of the Marshallian supply and demand paradigm. Fanno's overall theory, however, soon fell into oblivion, partially due to the enormous success of the emerging Hicks-Allen approach, at the end of the 1930s; and so did his more practical results. In this paper, we present a modern formalisation of Fanno's tax incidence theory, which tries to do justice to a series of results which have still today some normative validity.
