an optimal limiting government policy under an assumption that the economy converges to a steady state. The optimal limiting government policy is a long-run optimal outcome that takes into account intertemporal discounting and the convergence to the steady state. In a related paper, Davila, Hong, Krusell, and Rios-Rull () consider a social.   This is a great paper that shows how to compute optimal monetary policy in a Huggett type framework — both under discretion and under commitment. The authors find an interesting inflationary bias of discretionary policy in order to redistribute wealth to borrowing agents with high marginal utility of wealth. Tax systems raise large amounts of revenue for funding public sector's activities, and tax/transfer policy, together with public provision of education, health care, and social services, play a crucial role in treating the symptoms and the causes of poverty. The normative analysis is crucial for tax/transfer design because it makes it possible to assess separately how changes in the. Optimal capital income taxation is a subarea of optimal tax theory which refers to the study of designing a tax on capital income such that a given economic criterion like utility is optimized. Starting from the conceptualization of capital income as future consumption, the taxation of capital income corresponds to a differentiated consumption tax on present and future consumption.

As tax policy distorts the willingness of workers to find employment, it provides a simple rule which identifies the link between optimal social security benefits paid and the tax system.

Tax systems raise large amounts of revenue for funding public sector's activities, and tax/transfer policy, together with public provision of education, health care, and social services, play a crucial role in treating the symptoms and the causes of poverty.

Optimal Fiscal Policy with Heterogeneous Agents Different groups of agents in the economy have different preferences over these policies, and research is instead aimed at characterizing the optimal policy and studying the economic forces that drive it.

The optimal policy with no discretion, the expected Ramsey policy, by definition yields higher welfare. We prove (ii) by contradiction. Assume that but that the optimal policy has no discretion.

The variation used in Proposition 2 immediately implies that such a policy cannot be optimal. Thus, the optimal policy must have bounded discretion.

However, such market-based expectations can be hard to interpret because changes in risk and liquidity premiums also affect asset prices. In practice, policymakers should be cautious in relying on the expectations. heterogeneity of policy preferences, as heterogeneous preferences provide committee members incentives to gather information.

We compare the extent to which optimal policies based on different normative criteria obey the principles of compensation (for differential skills) and responsibility (for preferences for labor) when labor supply is along the extensive margin.

Therefore the only logical alternative of politically induced changes in the money supply, namely, laissez-faire, is the optimal monetary policy. It might be objected from the very outset that this approach cannot possibly warrant the conclusion it is supposed to yield, because the focus on the production of money is far too narrow to do.

I demonstrate that the optimal tax rate on asset income is indeed positive, but that given the prevailing rates of taxation in the United States, the maximal welfare benefit that can be obtained from adopting an optimal policy is much smaller than what usually emerges when government consumption expenditure is assumed to be exogenously determined.

But solving for fully optimal policy is a hard endeavor, because the policy-maker faces an infinite-dimensional, endogenously-evolving wealth and income distribution.
