Concentration curves, inequality and tax reform
|Title:||Concentration curves, inequality and tax reform||Authors:||Madden, David (David Patrick)||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/781||Date:||1995||Abstract:||This paper applies the concept of welfare dominance using concentration curves to household data for Ireland. It identifies marginal tax reforms which would be welfare-enhancing for all social welfare functions satisfying weak restrictions. It also examines cases where stronger restrictions need to be imposed on the social welfare function to yield dominance. These stronger restrictions which we label limited third degree stochastic dominance extends the range of welfare-enhancing marginal tax reforms.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
