Labour Income Taxation, Human Capital and Growth: The Role of Child Care

Alessandra Casarico () and Alessandro Sommacal ()

No 7039, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: This paper studies the effects of labour income taxation on growth in an OLG model where both formal schooling and child care enter the human capital production function as complements. We compare them with the effects obtained in a model where only formal schooling matters for skill formation. Using a numerical analysis we find that the omission of child care from the technology of skills' formation can significantly bias the results related to the effects of labour income taxation on growth.
