Ramsey Taxation in the Global Economy

Varadarajan Chari (), Pedro Teles () and Juan Pablo Nicolini ()

No 745, Working Papers from Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis

Abstract: We study cooperative optimal Ramsey equilibria in the open economy addressing classic policy questions: Should restrictions be placed to free trade and capital mobility? Should capital income be taxed? Should goods be taxed based on origin or destination? What are desirable border adjustments? How can a Ramsey allocation be implemented with residence-based taxes on assets? We characterize optimal wedges and analyze alternative policy implementations.
