Payroll taxes, capital grants and Irish unemployment
|Title:||Payroll taxes, capital grants and Irish unemployment||Authors:||Barry, Frank||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1379||Date:||Jul-1989||Abstract:||This paper explores the role of factor prices in macroeconomic models which embody the frequently-encountered Classical, Keynesian, and Structuralist perspectives on the caused of Irish unemployment. It is argued that within each framework a strong case can be made for at least partial repleacement of the current IDA capital-grants scheme by a policy of payroll-tax reductions for newly-created jobs. Various objections to this type of proposal have been raised in the literature, and these are dealt with here on a point-by-point basis. A range of estimates is given for the likely employment effects and exchequer costs of the proposed policy.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
