The public debt takes the form of one-period, single-coupon bond and the rate of return on public and private debt is constant over time. The government raises in each period tax revenues ˝ t. Government spending is indicated with G t and debt with b t and.   This tax burden can be measured as the difference between the welfare effects of tariff reform with inelastic and elastic labor supply, which allows us to answer an open question in public finance and expenditure literature: what is the tax burden associated with public investment when it is financed by distortionary taxation?

A Pigovian tax (also spelled Pigouvian tax) is a tax on any market activity that generates negative externalities (costs not included in the market price).

Parts (b) and (c) of Proposition 2 characterize the effect of the tax adjustment speed. Part (b) says that without RoT agents, it is always better not to rely on deficit financing and to repay government debt immediately: This avoids the negative wealth effects coming from the Cited by: Request PDF | Welfare Effects of Distortionary Fringe Benefits Taxation: The Case of Employer-provided Cars | In Europe, many employees receive company cars as fringe benefits induced by taxation.

The government levies a tax on sales to finance exogenous processes for transfers and government consumption. The policymaker aims to maximize the utility of the representative household.

This section therefore endogenizes the welfare costs of both inflation and distortionary taxation. Such a bias, in combination with relative-income effects, environmental disruption effects, and over-estimation of the excess burden of taxation, results in the over-spending on private.

Next, distortionary income taxation is incorporated through a stylized balanced-budget rule that is commonly adopted in the existing literature: Guo and Harrison (, henceforth GH) consider endogenous government spending financed by a constant tax rate levied on the household’s total : Jang-Ting Guo, Juin-jen Chang, Jhy-Yuan Shieh, Wei-Neng Wang.

The benefit of the proposed tax changes then rises slightly with income. Because lower taxes would lead to higher growth and because there would be a tax system that led to far fewer distortions of economic decisions, it is likely that employment, productivity and wage levels. Government Welfare (Pindyck and Rubinfeld, ): However, there is also a cost to government, which in essence is paid for by taxes.

Thus, ultimately this is actually a cost indirectly related to consumers. This amount is represented by the rectangle that makes up BCEFG.

Theory has focused on welfare effects—stressing the distortionary impact of taxation and government spending observed government sizes generally tend to be too large, thus depressing welfare in many countries, or actual policies depart from allocationally optimal ones, especially in the “Rhineland-model” European economies.

Real Government spending – spending adjusted for inflation. Title: The Macroeconomic Effects of Distortionary Taxation Author: Ellen R. McGrattan Created Date: 2/24/ PM.

This paper develops a model of competitive economy which is used to study the effect that distortionary taxes have on the business cycle and on agents’ welfare.

In the presence of distortions, the equilibria are not Pareto optimal and standard computational techniques cannot be used. Instead, methods that take into account the presence of distorting taxes are applied.

Taxes thus affect an economy in various ways, although the effects of taxes may not necessarily be good. There are same bad effects of taxes too.

Economic effects of taxation can be studied under the following headings: 1. Effects of Taxation on Production: Taxation can influence production and growth. The multiplier is sensitive to the fraction of transfers given to credit-constrained households, the duration of the zero lower bound and the capital.
