dc.description.abstractA relatively high labor-intensity in government-run entities need not imply slack in theirorganization. Rather, it is a rational reaction to various forms of wage tax advantage that thepublic sector has over private firms. Even though an unequal tax treatment of public andprivate sectors precludes production efficiency, it may improve welfare by mitigating thelabor supply distortion. With inelastic labor supply, privatizing a previously government-runsector improves welfare, while with elastic labor supply a full outsourcing of governmentactivities can never be optimal if it goes along with a decrease in net wages.en_US
