This volume examines a number of issues in public economics based on questions of taxation, private information, and capital. A wide range of normative and positive issues in the area of taxation are covered. The contributors, who include many of the world's leading experts in public economics, attempt to answer such crucial questions as: how severe are the foundations of modern public economies? How does private information constrain the character of taxation? What differences do uncertainty, income mismeasuremnt, imperfect competition, and open economy considerations make? How progressive actually is the tax system? Should capital income be taxed, and what difference would it make if it were not? Questions of tax reform, tax incidence, and tax evasion are also considered.
