A note on progressive taxation and cooperation.

Cozzi, G. (2005) 'A note on progressive taxation and cooperation.', Journal of Public Economic Theory., 7 (5). pp. 859-865.


This paper shows that marginally progressive taxation may help independent agents to sustain cooperation in a repeated prisoners' dilemma setting. It is suggested that political support for progressive taxation schemes may be affected by the desire to promote more cooperation among individuals.
