Tax Policy

TaxPolicy

In this course, we will discuss how states should set their tax policies. In more detail, we will speak about topics like optimal income tax rates, tax evasion, the influence of taxation to risk-taking and international tax competition. We will use advanced theoretical models and discuss recent empirical findings. Therefore, you should have a solid knowledge of the mathematics used in economics (esp. maximization under constraints).
