Optimal taxation and monitoring in an economy with matching frictions and underground activities

Gaetano Lisi ()

Eastern Journal of European Studies, 2011, vol. 2(1), 5-11

Abstract: This short paper shows the interdependence of taxation and monitoring policy in a search and matching model of equilibrium unemployment with an underground sector. More precisely, from a social welfare standpoint, two options are available to the policy maker: she/he may either substitute a tighter monitoring with a higher penalty or enforce both a higher taxation and an increased monitoring.
