Consumption Dominance Curves: Testing for the Impact of Tax Reforms on Poverty
A new tool is presented to test for the robustness of the impact on poverty of marginal tax reforms for pairs of commodities. Consumption Dominance Curves exist for every order of stochastic dominance while the more standard concentration curves are only linked to the second order of dominance. An illustration is provided with Bolivian data.
