The author reviews different areas of public economics in which there has been active research in recent years - namely the theory of optimum taxation, public choice theory, general equilibrium analysis of incidence, numerical tax-benefit modelling, and econometric studies of work incentives - and asks how these contribute to our understanding of this particular policy reform. He also indicates the promising directions for future research.

The economic consequences of rolling back the welfare state by A. B Atkinson( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 615 libraries worldwide
This text warns that many late-1990s fashionable policy proposals to roll back the welfare state could have unintended negative side effects, based as they are on an oversimplified view of the workings of the economy and of how welfare arrangements affect economic incentives. The author asks whether there are ways in which the welfare state plays a positive role in the modernization of the economy. He develops models of the labour market and of the growth of the corporate economy, which provide insight into the role and consequences of unemployment insurance, and the implications of moves to private pension funds. A.B. Atkinson does not attempt to determine whether or not spending should be cut. Rather, his aim is to clarify the nature of the charges levelled against the welfare state
Economic transformation in Eastern Europe and the distribution of income by A. B Atkinson( Book )
26 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and German and held by 533 libraries worldwide
"Who gains and who loses from economic transformation in Eastern Europe is a key question, but one which is too rarely discussed. This book examines the evidence about the distribution of income and poverty under Communism in Eastern Europe. Contrary to popular impressions, a great deal of information exists about the distribution of earnings and household incomes in Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland. With glasnost much material previously kept secret in the USSR became available. The book contains extensive statistical evidence that has not previously been assembled on a comparative basis, and takes the story right up to the end of Communism. The findings bring out the differences in experience between countries under Communism: between Central Europe and the former Soviet Union, between Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland, and between the newly independent states of the former USSR."--Jacket

Top incomes over the twentieth century : a contrast between continental European and English-speaking countries by A. B Atkinson( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
"Based on a pioneering research programme on the evolution of top incomes, this volume brings together studies from 10 OECD countries. This rapidly growing field of economic research investigates the top segment of the income distribution by using data from income tax records over the past century. As well as describing the source data and methods employed, the authors also discuss the dramatic changes that have occurred at the top of the income scale throughout the 20th century. This fascinating study is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive historic overview of top income distribution over the last century. It looks at why top incomes shares fell markedly in the first half of the 20th century and why, more recently, there has been a striking difference in the top income distribution between continental Europe and English-speaking OECD countries, like the UK, USA, and Australia. Written by the top names in the field, this seminal work provides rich pickings for those with an interest in inequality, development, the economic impact of war, taxation, economic history, and executive compensation"--Jacket
