    Regarding income taxes on corporations, nearly all countries assess them, but the provisions and rates differ widely. Most people will enjoy the benefits of public expenditure but will be reluctant to pay taxes. In all these cases, there are arguments for private provision rather than state provision. When looking at growth and government spending across the regions it is, of course, difficult to work out cause and effect — do the regions have low growth because they have high levels of government spending or does the government finance high levels of transfers to certain regions because they have experienced low growth?

    Generally, it will be available in less than sufficient quantities. The taxpayers are required to make certain payments, regardless of their individual wishes or desires in the matter. So, in the ultimate analysis, income is not a good test of ability. One of the earliest taxes mentioned in the Bible. Moreover, the marginal utility of money differs from man to man.

    Such supply changes have little effect on output if the economy is operating well below potential. As a result, a rise in individual income creates additional income that is taxed at a higher rate. Cautious conclusions. Ethicists have debated this rigorously.

Indeed, using the factor-cost measure of national income, government spending in the UK overtook private spending in the late s, before falling back to its current level of a little less than half of national income. At some point, however, the ability of the government to find spending projects that will enhance growth will be exhausted.

Kaldor, expenditure is the best possible measure of ability. Recent studies have adopted a slightly different approach, taking a more evolutionary perspective, comparing economic behavior of humans to a species of non-human primatethe capuchin monkey.

It is argued that the cause is entry barriers both practical and psychological and that returns between stocks and bonds should equalize as electronic resources open up the stock market to more traders. There certainly are some continental outliers, with the governments of Italy, Sweden, Austria, Belgium and France the latter shown in this table all spending over 50 per cent of national income.

Secondly, the spending ratios in the North East, Northern Ireland and Wales are beyond anything that is seen in developed countries.

The value of that increase in leisure time would not appear in national income accounts at all, whereas the value of the reduction in working hours would be fully captured as a reduction in growth.

Of course, any tax has this result. One clear example is road tax. A poor man may spend more if he has more dependants and if he has to look after his old parents. Researchers argue that this is similar to labor supply behavior in humans. To overcome this problem, an alternative principle has been suggested, viz.

The welfare-maximising share is probably in the range Environmental Taxation A Guide for Policy Makers This guide is based on the OECD‟s recently issued book Taxation, Innovation and the Environment.

Overview Environmental challenges are increasing the pressure on governments to find ways to reduce environmental damage while minimising harm to economic growth.

Some Background

Behavioral economics studies the effects of psychological, cognitive, emotional, cultural and social factors on the economic decisions of individuals and institutions and how those decisions vary from those implied by classical theory.
