Effects of Progressive Taxation

This project aims to develop a dynamic macroeconomic model that incorporates progressive taxation and income distribution. For this purpose, it will focus on endogenous growth models with heterogeneous agents and complete asset markets. This model will be used to analyze the aggregate and distributional effects of income tax policy in European economies with respect to major socioeconomic issues such as the declining working hours, income inequality-economic growth relationship, and tax reform proposals. Moreover, the effects of informality will be analyzed for countries with big informal sectors such as Greece, Italy, and Turkey.
