Steuern die Steuern Unternehmensentscheidungen?

Abstract

I discuss the theoretical and empirical underpinnings of recent and announced tax policy of the German government. In contrast to a popular view, I argue that German tax policy should focus less on growth and unemployment. Today, the central tasks of tax policy should be to stabilize fiscal revenue and promote income equalization.
