Tax Analysis in an Oligopoly Model

Michael Katz () and Harvey Rosen ()

No 1088, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: In this paper we analyze taxation using the conjectural variations model of oligopoly. We demonstrate the way in which the incidence of a tax depends upon the pattern of firm interaction. The results obtained have important implications for the controversy surrounding the question of whether a tax oncorporate income can be over-shifted. We also study normative aspects of taxation. The focus here is on the errors that can arise in excess burden calculations when incorrect assumptions on market structure are made.
