  10. Economic Behaviour and Taxation

    Economic Behaviour and Taxation

    Edited by James Alm, J. S. Leguizamon
    Over several decades there have been major changes to the way public economists investigate behavioural responses to taxation.

Other disciplines, especially psychology, are increasingly contributing to the application of behavioural (or cognitive) economics, but the lessons from this work are unevenly disseminated. This important volume brings together the most important scholarly articles on how taxes affect individual behaviour, highlighting current knowledge on behavioural responses to taxation, new thinking about the relevant issues and analysis of useful policy options.
