Renström, T.I. and Spataro, L. (2021) 'Optimal taxation in an endogenous growth model with variable population and public expenditure.', Journal of public economic theory., 23 (4). pp. 639-659.
In this paper we analyse second-best optimal taxation in an endogenous-growth model driven by public expenditure, in presence of endogenous fertility and labour supply. Normative analysis shows positive taxes on the number of children, which are necessary to correct for congestion in the publicly provided input (such as education and healthcare), negative public debt. Results on capital and labour income taxation depend on whether the public input is optimally provided.
