Optimal Taxation of Top Labor Incomes: A Tale of Three Elasticities by Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Stefanie Stantcheva. Published in volume 6, issue 1, pages of American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, February , Abstract: This paper derives optimal top tax rate formulas in a mod. The Fundamental Theorems of Welfare Economics John S. Chipman University of Minnesota Janu 1 Preliminary Concepts and Discussion The so-called “fundamental theorems of welfare economics” state that, under certain conditions, every competitive equilibrium is a Pareto optimum, and conversely, every Pareto optimum is a competitive.

Workfare has had a chequered history because it has not been well thought out. It increases employment not just because it calls the bluff of the workshy; this element need not be all that harsh. It works because it acts as a marginal employment subsidy of a type not tried before (except unwittingly as part of workfare). The subsidy is as follows. In the theoretical literature, a specific type of marginal employment subsidies, which we will call ‘symmetric marginal employment subsidies’ (SMS), has been discussed as an alternative policy instrument to general wages subsidies (Layard and Nickell, ; Oswald, ; Layard et al., ). The idea is to subsidize extra jobs, but at.

Employment subsidy programs have been introduced in Japan, Great Britain, Europe and the United States. There has been some concern, however, about the effectiveness of such programs. In this paper, we analyze how a profit-maximizing firm will respond to a marginal subsidy program with a fixed threshold, focusing on the role of inventories. an emissions tax equal to the marginal social cost at the socially optimal quantity of pollution induces polluters to _____ zero in the absence of gov. action, polluters will pollute until the marginal social benefit of an additional unit of emission is ___.

THREE THEOREMS ON INFLATION TAXES AND MARGINAL EMPLOYMENT SUBSIDIES* Andrew J. Oswald Most Western nations are now experiencing high levels of unemployment. Traditional economic policies have apparently either helped to produce this or have not been able to eliminate the problem. Thus some economists have.

The theorems, which show the policies' formal similarities, are illustrated with examples. One caveat is also raised: in a competitive industry (rather than a single firm), with free entry and exit, a marginal employment subsidy might reduce the total number of jobs. The paper also proves (iii) that in special circumstances a tax on inflation is exactly equivalent to a marginal employment by: The theorems, which show the policies' formal similarities, are illustrated with examples.

The paper studies the micro-economics of inflation taxes and marginal employment subsidies. It proves that under very weak assumptions (i) an inflation tax will reduce the long-run equilibrium wage or price and (ii) that a marginal employment subsidy will raise the long-run equilibrium employment level.

It is argued with equal vigor (1) that sales taxes are deflationary because they take purchasing power from those who spend virtually the whole of their incomes, and (2) that the effect of the tax in to set in motion a spiral of wage increases and increases in agricultural parity payments which results in serious price inflation.

In this paper, we attempt to renew the interest in marginal employment subsidies. Such subsidies are paid only for a firm's additional employment exceeding some reference level and create larger employment stimuli at lower fiscal costs than general wage subsidies for all workers.

It proves that under very weak assump- tions (i) an inflation tax will reduce the long-run equilibrium wage or price and (ii) that a marginal employment subsidy will raise the long- run equilibrium employment level.

The main research of this paper is the regional effects of marginal wage subsidies.

Some regional economic issues are discussed such as production scales, operating profits, industry distribution, and expenditure distribution across the rich and poor regions. It is proven that, marginal wage subsidies improve the employment and raise the industrial share of the poor region, but.

A specific and fairly modest proposal to start with would be to abolish employers’ PRSI contributions for new jobs; i.e. for any increase in a firm’s employment over and above the level recorded at.
