Tax Policy and Economic Growth: Does it really matter?
SAVE THE DATE!
CONFEDILIZIA-UIPI Parliamentary Event
25 September 2018
Following the need for stronger economic governance and coordination at EU level, national taxation policy became one of the key policies monitored through the European Semester. A common policy recommendation from the European Commission and other international institutions is to shift taxes away from labour to tax bases which are considered less detrimental to growth.
The purpose of this event is to bring into the discussion new empirical evidence on the relationship between taxation, tax shift and growth. At this occasion, we will present a study demonstrating that while a negative and substantial relationship between the overall tax revenue and growth can be identified in some cases, no significant and robust relations between various types of revenue-neutral tax shift and growth can be established.
