SFB 303 Discussion Paper No. A - 130

Author: Broadway, Robin, Pierre Pestieau, and David Wildasin
Title: Tax-Transfer Policies and the Voluntary Provision of Public Goods
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, it extends previous models of non-cooperative private funding of pure public goods by allowing both for distortionary taxation of private goods. Second, it clarifies the type of behavioral and informational assumptions which are needed to result in neutrality of both lump-sum and distortionary policies. The analysis is developed in the context of fiscal federalism.
