Tax Policy and the Economy, vol. 4.

Tax Policy, Volume 4

Tax Policy and the Economy, Volume 4, edited by Lawrence H. Summers, is now available. The cloth volume is priced at $26.95; the paperback is $13.95.

This volume presents the papers and discussions of the NBER's fourth annual tax policy conference, held in Washington last November. In the first paper, Summers and Daniel R. Feenberg ask who benefits from reductions in the capital gains tax. Next, Eytan Sheshinski contrasts the tax treatment of capital income in several industrialized countries. Mark L. Gertler and R. Glenn Hubbard investigate the effect of taxation on corporate capital structure. Alan J. Auerbach and Laurence J. Kotlikoff consider the influence of demographics on saving. Finally, Lawrence H. Goulder studies the possibility of withholding taxes on foreigners' U.S. interest income.

This volume should appeal to anyone with a basic understanding of economics who is interested in tax issues.

Summers is a research associate in the NBER's Program in Taxation and the Nathaniel Ropes Professor of Political Economy at Harvard University.
