  • Genuine saving and the social cost of taxation
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Journal of Public Economics. - Amsterdam : Elsevier. - 0047-2727. ; 96:1-2, s. 211-217
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Following the 1987 report by The World Commission on Environment and Development, the genuine saving has come to play a key role in the context of sustainable development, and the World Bank regularly publishes numbers for genuine saving on a national basis. However, these numbers are typically calculated as if the tax system is non-distortionary. This paper presents an analogue to genuine saving in a second best economy, where the government raises revenue by means of distortionary taxation. We show how the social cost of public debt, which depends on the marginal excess burden, ought to be reflected in the genuine saving. By presenting calculations for Greece, Japan, Portugal, U.K., U.S. and OECD average, we also show that the numbers published by the World Bank are likely to be biased and may even give incorrect information as to whether the economy is locally sustainable.

  • Optimal tax progression : does it matter whether wage bargaining is decentralized or centralized?
  • 2011
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • We study how the optimal use of labor income tax progression depends on whether the wage bargaining system is decentralized or centralized. Assuming a nonlinear labor income tax and an unrestricted profit tax, we show that a Utilitarian government is able to implement the first best resource allocation with a zero marginal labor income tax rate under decentralized wage bargaining, whereas centralized bargaining typically implies a progressive tax as well as unemployment. However, if the government and a (central) wage-setter bargain over wage formation and public policy, the resulting equilibrium is characterized by full employment and a zero marginal tax rate.

  • Optimal taxation and risk-sharing arrangements in an economic federation
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: Oxford Economic Papers. - Oxford University Press. - 0030-7653. ; 55:1, s. 104-120
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper analyzes optimal taxation and risk‐sharing arrangements in an economy with two levels of government. Both levels provide public goods and finance their expenditures via labor income taxation, where the tax base is responsive to the private agents' labor supply decisions. The localities are assumed to experience different random productivity shocks, meaning that       the private labor supply decision as well as the choices of income tax rates are carried out under uncertainty. Part of the central government's decision problem is then to provide tax revenue sharing between the local governments. The optimal degree of revenue sharing depends on whether or not the localities/regions differ with respect to labor supply incentives.

  • Regional income growth and net migration in Sweden, 1970-1995
  • 2001
  • Ingår i: Regional studies. - Taylor & Francis Group. - 0034-3404. ; 35:9, s. 823-830
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper concerns the regional growth pattern in Sweden, and the purpose is to analyse what factors determine the growth rate of average income and the net migration at the regional level. We find a negative relationship between the initial level of regional average income and subsequent income growth. The results also imply that the initial endowment of human capital (measured as the percentage of the population with higher education) has a positive effect on the subsequent net migration. Other determinants of regional income growth and population movements are 'fixed endowments' (related to geography and climate) and regional labour market characteristics.

  • Social identity, education and tax policy
  • 2014
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This paper analyzes the implications of social identity and self-categorization in the context of optimal redistributive income taxation. A two-type model is supplemented by an assumption that individuals select themselves into social categories, in which norms are formed and education effort choices partly depend on these norms. Optimal tax policy is analyzed under two different assumptions about the social objective function: a welfarist objective based on consumer preferences and a paternalist objective that does not reflect the consumer preference for social identity. We show how the welfarist government implements a tax policy to internalize the externalities arising from social norms, while the paternalist government uses tax policy to make individuals behave as if their preferences for social identity were absent.

  • State-variable public goods when relative consumption matters : a dynamic optimal taxation approach
  • 2011
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This paper concerns the optimal provision of a state-variable public good, where the global climate is the prime example. The analysis is based on a two-type optimal income tax model with overlapping generations, where people care about their relative consumption. We consider both keeping-up-with-the-Joneses preferences (where people compare their own current consumption with others’ current consumption) and catching-up-with-the-Joneses preferences (where people compare their own current consumption with others’ past consumption). The extent to which the rule for public provision ought to be modified is shown to depend crucially on the preference elicitation format.

  • The Impact of regional public expenditures on the local decision to spend
  • 2000
  • Ingår i: Regional Science and Urban Economics. - 0166-0462. ; 30:2, s. 185-202
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper studies the hypothesis that local (municipal) expenditures in part can be explained by the expenditures of the regional (county) government. To accomplish this task, we derive and estimate a model of local public (municipal) spending that is defined conditional on the level of regional public expenditures. The empirical analysis is based on panel data from the Swedish local public sector for the time period 1981–1986. Among the results, we find that the hypothesis that regional expenditures are weakly separable from local expenditures can be rejected. However, we cannot reject the hypothesis that the regional expenditures are weakly exogenous in the local expenditure equation.

  • A note on optimal paternalism and health capital subsidies
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Economics Letters. - Elsevier. - 0165-1765. ; 101:3, s. 241-242
  • Tidskriftsartikel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This paper concerns the policy implications of a potential self-control problem underlying the consumption of unhealthy food. Our results show that subsidies on wealth and healthcapital can be used to implement a socially optimal resource allocation.
