Initial incidence of carbon taxes and environmental liability. A vehicle ownership approach

A German panel data of vehicle and owner characteristics is used to analyse the incidence of additional carbon taxes. It is shown that an additional carbon tax on fuel used for private transportation is regressive when there is no allocation of tax revenue. When smoothing consumption across time in the face of additional carbon taxes, low income households can reduce the tax burden. When the cost of ...

Rational Behavior versus Social Preferences: What determines Attitudes towards Income Redistribution?

Should rich people pay higher taxes? To answer this question an individual needs to consider his attitudes towards income redistribution. Such preferences might be based on the individual income but also on social factors.

De-routinization of Jobs and Polarization of Earnings – Evidence from 35 Countries

The job polarization hypothesis suggests a U-shaped pattern of employment growth along the earnings/skill distribution, which is driven by simultaneous growth in the employment of highskill/high-earnings and low-skill/low-earnings occupations due to Routine-Biased Technological Change (RBTC) [Acemoglu and Autor, 2011].
