Title: Income Taxation and Voluntary Provision of Public Goods - Some Counterintuitive Results
Abstract: In a model of voluntary provision of public goods and endogenous labor supply we will derive some counterintuitive results. First, a reverse ranking between ability and utility may occur. Second, not any tax schedule induces an allocation fulfilling the property of equitability. Third, a Rawlsian optimal tax may be lower than a utilitarian one.
