Optimal Provision of Public Goods with Rank Dependent Expected Utility
Erling Eide ()
Public Finance = Finances publiques, 1998, vol. 53, issue 3-4, 296-311
In this paper the theory of rank-dependent expected utility (RDEU) is substituted for the theory of expected utility (EU) in a model of optimal provision of public goods. The substitution generalizes the Samuelson rule, previously modified to include deadweight loss and tax evasion loss. Under given assumptions it is demonstrated that the marginal cost of public funds is higher in a RDEU model than in a corresponding EU model.
