Introduction. Some of the contributions in the recent literature on multilateral tax reform have focused on the welfare effects of indirect tax harmonization policies (Keen, , Lockwood, Keen, Turunen-Red and Woodland, Keen and Lahiri, Kanbur and Keen, Lopez-Garcia, ).The models underlying these contributions usually assume that tax revenue is returned . and thus force foreign tax hikes or expenditure cuts that are potentially welfare-reducing. This third channel (called, tax–revenue erosion channel) is a by-product of the price and wealth channels. The effects of tax harmonization reforms can thus be broken up conceptually into two. On the other hand, universal programs are very costly and we cannot expect the future welfare state to be able to rely on much less revenue than the current situation. Moreover, while there are important differences between countries in the level of public social expenditures, such differences appear much smaller when private compulsory.
This thesis contains three chapters, each concerning the social welfare effects of fiscal policy. The first chapter examines the changes to government spending and tax rates that achieve a potentially substantial reduction in government debt at least cost to social welfare. The consequences of altering the speed of debt reduction are also examined. Finally, we conduct a simulation exercise on the effects of capital tax harmonization on fiscal revenues and output in the EU countries. 18 We consider two capital harmonization possibilities: first, harmonization is assumed to take place at the unweighted average capital tax rate, similar to the analysis in Sørensen (); and second.

Welfare in the United Kingdom rises as result, while Continental Europe may incur a.
