The Effect of the Tax System on the Impact of Government Debt

Part of the Central Issues in Contemporary Economic Theory and Policy book series (CICETP)


Just as the ultimate impact of changes in taxes with a macroeconomic impact, such as the corporate income tax, cannot be determined without considering the concomitant changes in fiscal and monetary policies that could be expected, so the impact of changes in national debt resulting from deficits cannot be determined withoret looking into the tax structure that is likely to be involved in ultimately paying off the debt. Indeed fairly drastic differences in the impact of government debt will result from what may appear to be minor changes in the tax structure.
