The Laffer curve assumes that no tax revenue is raised at the extreme tax rates of 0% and %, and that there is a tax rate between 0% and % that maximizes government tax revenue.

Abstract. This paper examines how changes to the individual income tax affect long-term economic growth.

The structure and financing of a tax change are critical to achieving economic growth. Productivity drives our living standards. In our April Fiscal Monitor, we show that countries can raise productivity by improving the design of their tax system, which includes both policies and administration.

This would allow business reasons, not tax ones, to drive firms’ investment and employment decisions.And productivity growth can be influenced by government policy, about which I also want to say a few words. 1 Labor productivity growth varies a lot from year to year, but it is possible to discern longer historical periods with high or low productivity growth, as shown in figure 1.Tax policy is the mechanism through which market results are redistributed, affecting after-tax inequality.

The provisions of the United States Internal Revenue Code regarding income taxes and estate taxes have undergone significant changes under both Republican and Democratic administrations and Congresses since Since the Johnson Administration, the top marginal income tax rates have.
