Researches in public finance have clarified the effects of tax policies that are neither originally intended nor easily observable. This work contributes to the literature of public finance by rigorously examining the effects of three particular tax policies using quantitative models and econometric analysis. Chapter 1 aims to answer the question as to what is the optimal apportionment formula for the US state corporate income tax.

In many cases, however, conditions for private market efficiency are violated. For example, if many people can enjoy the same good the moment that good was produced and sold, it starts to give its utility to every one for free at the same time non-rival, non-excludable consumption , then private markets may supply too little of that good.
Chapter 1 showed how competitive markets achieve efficiency for private goods – or goods that benefit one person. We also noted that for public goods, which.
Questions and Problems 1. What is the economic rationale for such a requirement? There are two economic rationales for government provision of a good or service: mar- ket failure and redistribution. A market failure argument for state provision of education would be that an educated population benefits society generally because, for example, well- educated individuals have better job prospects and are therefore less likely to commit crimes.
