Recent Trends in Income Inequality in Finland
The aim of this paper is to discuss the determinants of the U.S. dollar real exchange rate fluctuation. We focus our analysis on a nominal exchange rate effect on tradable prices. We explicitly consider the effects of ...
RELATIVITY, INEQUALITY AND OPTIMAL NONLINEAR INCOME TAXATION
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2010)
How does concern for consumption relative to others ("relativity") affect the progressivity of the optimal income tax structure? In this paper we revisit this literature and present a more detailed analysis of the solution ...
On Optimal Non-linear Income Taxation: Numerical Results Revisited
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2003)
Based on numerical simulations there seems to be a kind of consensus in the optimal tax literature that the marginal tax rate should fall rather than rise with income. Retaining the same formal structure as in Mirrlees ...
On Recent Trends in Economic Poverty in Finland
We have examined recent trends in the economic or financial poverty in Finland using two data sources, the Income Distribution Statistics (IDS) and the Consumption Expenditure Survey (CES). We have drawn on the recent ...
On optimal lifetime redistribution policy
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2007)
Abstract: In this paper we examine various aspects of the optimal lifetime redistribution policy within a cohort. We characterise optimal redistribution policy when society consists of individuals who do not differ only ...
On the shape of optimal non-linear income tax schedule
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2006)
This paper shows that the assumed distribution of earning abilities (wages) plays an important role in determining the optimal shape of non-linear income tax schedule. We replace the assumption of lognormal distribution ...
On the design of an optimal non-linear pension system with habit formation
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2008)
We study optimal lifetime redistributive policy in a two-period model where individuals differ in both productivity and future discounting and where their retirement period utility is dependent of the earlier standard of ...
Publicly Provided Private Goods and Redistribution: A General Equilibrium Analysis
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2001)
This paper focuses on two sets of impacts of public provision of private goods that have been neglected in the self-selection framework of optimal taxation, the by-now standard approach in examining public provision. We ...
Public Versus Private Production Decisions and Redistribution
(Tampereen yliopisto, 2002)
We analyse the decision rules governing public employment policy and capital allocation between private and public sector in a simple two-type and two-sector optimal non-linear income tax model with endogenous wages. Results ...
Incentives, Inequality and the Allocation of Aid When Conditionality Doesn\'t Work: An Optimal Nonlinear Taxation Approach
This paper analyses the impact of aid, and its optimal allocation, when conditionality is ineffective. It is assumed that the recipient government will implement its own preferences no matter what. In this set up, aid can ...
