''Progressivity of burden-sharing in a Lindahl Equilibrium: a unifying criterion''
( 2018, Vol. 38 No.4 )
In this paper, we show that progressivity (regressivity) of burden sharing in a Lindahl equilibrium is a direct consequence of gross complementarity (substitutability) between the private and the public good when the public good is taken as the numéraire. We then link these novel basic conditions to the conditions for progressivity (regressivity) that have been presented in the literature so far.
Keywords: Lindahl equilibrium, progressive (regressive) burden sharing, complements and substitutes
