Taxes in a cge model

The direct burden of a tax is measured by the amount of tax revenue that it generates.


Taxes in a cge model

Tax incidence describes how the tax burden is shared between buyers and sellers – after prices have adjusted.


An ad valorem tariff rate is calculated as import tariff revenue fob value of imports 100

An ad valorem tariff rate is calculated as: import tariff revenue/fob value of imports * 100


Taxes in a cge model

An import tax can affect a nation’s welfare due to both efficiency effects and terms-of-trade changes.


Taxes in a cge model

When one country imposes an import tariff, the change in global welfare is the sum of importer and export efficiency losses, plus the terms of trade effects.


Taxes in a cge model

Terms of trade effects result from export and import (trade) taxes, but not from domestic sales and production taxes.


Taxes in a cge model

The welfare effect of a tax excludes its direct burden on producers and consumers.


Taxes in a cge model

In the SAM, producers’ expenditure on production taxes are included in value added and add to the cost of production and the value of gross output.


Taxes in a cge model

A tax on capital used in agriculture can lower welfare by reducing the productivity of capital in non-agricultural sectors.

Multiple Choice Questionsclick on your answer


Taxes in a cge model

After imposing a new production tax on its manufacturing sector, a country gains an increase in tax revenue of $365 million, but a loss in welfare of $49 million. What is the marginal welfare burden of this additional tax revenue?

-4.6 percent.

-8.1 percent.

-12.8 percent.

-13.4 percent.


Taxes in a cge model

After a country imposes a new “sin” tax on cigarette production, it finds that its EV welfare has actually risen. What is a possible cause?

Welfare will unambiguously rise if a new tax is imposed.

As output of cigarettes falls, output in non-subsidized corn rise.

As output of domestic cigarettes falls, output of subsidized tobacco falls.

As output of cigarettes falls, dutiable cigarette imports rises.


Assume that revenue from a new tax has a marginal welfare burden of 12 2 percent this means that

Assume that revenue from a new tax has a marginal welfare burden of 12.2 percent. This means that:

An additional dollar of the next tax revenue costs 12.2 cents in efficiency losses.

Neither A nor B.

Both A and B.

The marginal benefit of a new tax-funded investment must be at least 12.2 percent greater that the amount of the investment.


Income taxes are non distorting in cge models

Income taxes are non-distorting in CGE models.

True, because no CGE models account for labor-leisure trade-offs.

True, because no CGE models account for structural shifts in aggregate demand.

None of the above.

False, it depends on how income taxes are modeled in the CGE model.
