题:The welfare effects of consumption taxes and UBI


主讲人:Qian Li


摘要:

We build a stochastic OLG model in a general equilibrium framework to compare consumption taxes and income taxes, and to compare universal basic income (UBI) and targeted transfers. We found that replacing income taxes with consumption taxes increases long run welfare for newborns, but yields a short run welfare loss for the current population. The best way to finance UBI is through consumption taxes. However, UBI instead of targeted transfer reduces the overall welfare by deteriorate poor households.
