Mobility and tax competition when wages are endogenously determined

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study a model of tax competition where both skilled and unskilled workers are mobile and wages of workers are endogenously determined. When the demand for skilled labor is sufficiently elastic, the equilibrium tax rate is decreasing in the degree of mobility of unskilled workers; otherwise the former is increasing in the latter.
