Abstract: Taking environmental tax rate as given, is there an optimal allocation of tax revenues to benefit economic variables? This paper analyzes this issue in an overlapping-generations model with the pollution-related health damage. It finds the optimal allocations towards pollution abatement and labor income to maximize the steady-state lifetime welfare and per-worker output, respectively. Moreover, a greater shift towards labor income might enhance steady-state welfare while reducing per-worker output.
