''Capital taxation with population control''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.4 )
Excessive population growth or hostility against immigrants has induced government adoption of population control measures, e.g., housing regulations and restrictive immigration laws. As labor supply becomes constrained by such measures, capital returns decrease, so that governments might want to lower taxation to avoid an ensuing capital flight. However, population control also reduces the potential congestion in the use of government-provided goods, making taxation marginally more beneficial, so a higher tax rate may be optimal when there is significant congestion.
Keywords: Population growth control, Immigration control, Tax competition, Public goods.
