Therefore, we apply an OLG-model, wherein human capital formation is exposed to idiosyncratic risk. Extending the instruments available for social insurance, a (Norwegian-type) two-bracket progressive labor tax system and education subsidies are shown to enhance the efficiency-insurance trade-off and to increase social welfare compared to a standard Eaton-Rosen-world. Progression is a superior instrument for insurance, and education subsidies are desirable to alleviate efficiency losses. Finally, we link our results to the flat tax debate. Direct tax progression becomes the more likely the more welfare costs are caused by income risk, the less elastic is labor supply and the more education is boosted by education subsidies.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:43:55Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Yang, Hongyan</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
