In this paper, we show that progressivity (regressivity) of burden sharing in a Lindahl equilibrium is a direct consequence of gross complementarity (substitutability) between the private and the public good when the public good is taken as the numÃ©raire. We then link these novel basic conditions to the conditions for progressivity (regressivity) that have been presented in the literature so far.
