Title:The Comparison Between Ad Valorem and Unit Taxes under Monopolistic Competition PDF Logo
Authors:Schröder, Philipp J. H.
Issue Date:2003
Series/Report no.:DIW-Diskussionspapiere 333
Abstract:This paper shows that the welfare dominance of ad valorem over unit taxes under imperfect competition, extends to the Dixit-Stiglitz framework with differentiated products, entry and love of variety. This contrasts against findings by Anderson et al. (J Public Econ, 2001) made in a similar framework, but under Bertrand competition.
