Against 'Gender-based taxation'
Gilles Saint-Paul ()
No 6582, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers
This paper criticizes the Alesina and Ichino (2007) proposal of taxing men more than women. First, the proposal is outright sex discrimination. Second, it cannot be Pareto-improving. Third, its virtues in terms of efficiency are better obtained by gender-neutral voluntary schemes for taxing households. Fourth, the tax would further undermine marriage.
