Summary
Marginal income tax rates in advanced industrial countries have fallen dramatically since the mid-1980s, but level and progressivity of income taxation continue to differ strongly across countries. This study offers a new perspective on both observations. It blends theoretical inquiry with focused quantitative analysis and in-depth investigation of seven countries: Germany, Australia and New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. This study highlights the equity-efficiency tradeoffs that structure the politics of income taxation and analyses how income taxes are embedded in broader tax systems. It explains the limited but enduring importance of political parties and democratic institutions. Finally, it provides a view of the role of globalisation and gives the pros and cons of tax coordination at the European and international levels
