|Theme: A theoretical analysis of redistribution policy
This research mainly investigated the government's redistribution policy between individuals, regions, and/or generations. In particular I have conducted the following studies.
1) As incentives of redistribution policy there are two factors; altruistic motive and risk sharing. I have developed an theoretical framework to analyze these two factors.
2) As to the interregional transfer I have investigated the role of local allocation tax and analyzed the optimal characteristics of the allocation tax.
3) I have investigated the redistribution and taxation policy using a macro-economic growth model with human capital accumulation.
