This essay discusses the policy debate concerning optimal taxation and the distribution of income. It begins with a brief overview of trends in income inequality, the leading hypothesis to explain these trends, and the distribution of the tax burden. It then considers the normative question of how the tax system should be designed. Should the income tax system include a tax credit for short taxpayers and a tax surcharge for tall ones?
Moreover, based on the empirical distribution of height and wages, the optimal height tax is substantial: This result has two possible interpretations. One interpretation is that individual attributes correlated with wages, such as height, should be considered more widely for determining tax liabilities.
Alternatively, if policies such as a tax on height are rejected, then the standard Utilitarian framework must in some way fail to capture our intuitive notions of distributive justice.
This essay discusses various aspects of this policy debate. It focuses, in particular, on the use of these taxes to correct for various externalities—an idea advocated long ago by British economist Arthur Pigou.
This paper examines the optimal allocation of risk in an overlapping-generations economy. It compares the allocation of risk the economy reaches naturally to the allocation that would be reached if generations behind a Rawlsian "veil of ignorance" could share risk with one another through complete Arrow-Debreu contingent-claims markets.
The paper then examines how the government might implement optimal intergenerational risk sharing with a social security system.
One conclusion is that the system must either hold equity claims to capital or negatively index benefits to equity returns. This paper develops and analyzes a general-equilibrium model with sticky information. The only rigidity in goods, labor, and financial markets is that agents are inattentive, sporadically updating their information sets, when setting prices, wages, and consumption. It then estimates the parameters of the model using U. It finds that information stickiness is present in all markets, and is especially pronounced for consumers and workers.
Variance decompositions show that monetary policy and aggregate demand shocks account for most of the variance of inflation, output, and hours. Skip to main content. Main Menu Utility Menu Search. Download Citations. Mankiw NG.
