Topic: Tax Evasion

After recent events such as the Panama and Paradise Papers leak, tax evasion by individuals faces renewed scrutiny. In this seminar, we will discuss results from the current academic literature regarding this topic. In particular, we will consider estimates of the amount of tax evasion that actually occurs and look at various policy measures against tax evasion and how effective they are. We will discuss both theoretical and empirical studies.
