Specific or ad valorem tax for an exhaustible resource?

N.M. Hung and N.V. Quyen

Economics Letters, 2009, vol. 102, issue 2, 132-134

Abstract: Not withstanding the equivalence in static framework between an ad-valorem and a specific sale tax, this paper shows in the dynamic Hotelling model for an exhaustible resource that the ad valorem tax is definitely welfare-superior to the specific tax.
