Title:Public procurement in the presence of capital taxation PDF Logo
Authors:Weichenrieder, Alfons J.
Issue Date:1999
Series/Report no.:ZEW Discussion Papers 99-41
Abstract:The paper considers governments' public procurement decision as a way of influencing industry structure. In a federation in which capital is mobile and capital taxation is harmonized, a home bias in public procurement can potentially be explained as an effort to increase the capital intensity of local production and to attract taxable capital. As a result, governments may prefer domestic firms to more efficient foreign firms.
