Aiming for Well-Being through Taxation: A Framework of Caution and Restraint for States

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientific

Abstract

Should tax policy go beyond economic measures, such as GDP, and include measures related to well-being? And if taxation aims for well-being, what should be the framework of assessment in that regard?

To a large extent, these fundamental questions on the interactions between well-being and taxation have remained unexplored in literature. The thesis Aiming for Well-Being through Taxation examines many intricate and important issues surrounding the intersection of tax law and well-being. The author proposes a practical framework of caution and restraint, which provides an essential supporting structure for assessing and improving tax measures undertaken by states in their aim for well-being through taxation.

Cases
The proposed assessment framework is thoroughly explored through the lens of three case studies. The author examines:

tax incentives for innovation
environmental taxes
tax incentives for employment
For each area, the author identifies critical issues and puts forward practical recommendations.
