ABSTRACT

This paper suggests a simple method for analyzing the distributional effects of marginal changes in commodity taxes. The distributional effect of a tax is measured by its impact on the Gini coefficient of the overall distribution of real income. Then the Gini coefficient is decomposed in a manner resembling the decomposition of the coefficient of variation. This decomposition yield non-parametric estimates of income elasticities of the Engel curves. The magnitudes of these elasticities determine the desired change in taxes. The method is illustrated with data from Israel. More... »
