WiSe 23/24 – Seminar “Independent Research on Tax Policy”
The aim of this seminar is to give students first-hand experience in independent academic research. Students will be assigned - based on their interest - to one of two groups. Group 1 will write a policy paper that aims to provide policymakers with a comprehensive perspective on what we know from the theoretical and empirical academic literature on the effect of certain tax policy instruments on economic activity and to formulate policy implications that follow from the academic insights. The second group of students writes a scientific paper targeted to an academic audience. The paper will be empirical in nature and will assess the effect of tax policy on firm and/or household behavior.
If you are interested in the seminar, please join us for the first meeting on
Monday October 16 at 2 pm in lecture room STA2
