IZA DP No. Employment Effects of Labour Taxation in an Efficiency Wage Model with Alternative Budget Constraints and Time Horizons Laszlo Goerke In an efficiency wage economy with variable profits, a shift from payroll to employment taxes will reduce unemployment if the tax level is held constant at the initial wage. Using straightforward examples, he demonstrates how efficiency-wage theory can explain labor market outcomes and guide government policy. There is a separate section of applications to less developed countries. “Efficiency-wage models represent one of the most important developments in economic theory of recent years.

  Recently, efficiency wage models of unemployment have received much attention in public economics. For example, Johnson and Layard [3] and Pisauro [4] have used different versions of these models to examine how an ad valorem tax on labor (i.e., a wage tax) or a specific tax (an employment tax) affects the after-tax wage and unemployment. Under the standard competitive model, a tax change affecting workers with highly inelastic labor supply, will lower earnings by the entire nominal employer share of the tax increase. If wages play a motivational role but the market still clears, the range of possible outcomes is broader but wages should still not rise if the tax is nominally divided 50/

The disproportionate burden of the tax on labor from substitution effects is offset by the disproportionate burden on capital from the efficiency wage effect. Ignoring this effect thus gets the sign of the sources-side incidence wrong. Modern efficiency wage theory focuses more on worker morale and labor turnover, and less on the physical needs of workers, a central issue in Smith's time. Robert Owen (), owner of the New Lanark spinning mills in Scotland, attempted to put the idea of efficiency wages into practice.

Abstract. This paper analyses the effects of labour taxation on wage and employment in a moral hazard-efficiency wage model, where effort is a continuous variable and workers are risk averse. In the model examined, ad valorem and specific taxes on labour do not have the same consequences on the real wage.

Both taxes have a negative effect on employment, but the imposition of a specific tax Cited by: The positive employment effect in the efficiency wage economy occurs since the income tax, in contrast to the payroll tax, is characterized by a positive level of tax exemption.

Therefore, a. This paper analyses the effects of labour taxation on wage and employment in a moral hazard-efficiency wage model, where effort is a continuous variable and workers are risk averse.

In this paper we show how the information structure of employer-employee relationships, in particular the inability of employers to costlessly observe workers' on-the-job effort, can explain involuntary unemployment as an equilibrium phenomenon. All these expenditures depend on wages and/or employment levels.

In the models set out in Chapter 2, firms have, therefore, been assumed to pay two types of taxes which are related to labour input: first, a potentially non-linear payroll tax S(w, n) and, second, a linear employment tax σ.

Efficiency Wage Models of the Labor Market explores the reasons why there are labor market equilibria with employers preferring to pay wages in excess of the market-clearing wage and thereby explains involuntary unemployment.

Since the greatest share of federal tax revenue, approximately 50% inis raised by the individual income tax, we are certainly interested in its effects on economic activity.

So an income tax results in a lower quantity of labor being supplied to the market (people either stop working, or work less hours), and a higher salary paid by employers BUT a lower salary received by employees.

An income tax has negative effects on an economy and creates a deadweight loss which means that it is an inefficient policy. This chapter has set out in detail the models which are employed below in order to analyse the labour market effects of changes in tax rates and in alterations in the tax structure.

The fundamental mechanisms underlying the different approaches have been pointed out. Moreover, vital assumptions have been emphasised.

We will use the same model later when we describe policies to alter the level of unemployment in the entire economy. Later in this unit and in Units 16 and 17 we will look at the ways in which labour unions can affect the wage-setting process and so alter the workings of the labour market.

Wage-setting curves have been estimated for many economies. The models considered are union models, an equilibrium search model with wage bargaining, an equilibrium search model with wage posting by firms and efficiency wage models.

We find that in all basic models, an increase in tax progression leads to lower wages and higher employment. Extensions of the models can however change these results. Pisauro, G.

In short, the behavior of the Chilean labor market poses a number of questions for the competitive hypothesis. The results of this research are consistent with the predictions of efficiency wage models.

RESUMEN. In labor economics, the efficiency wage hypothesis argues that wages, at least in some labour markets, form in a way that is not ically, it points to the incentive for managers to pay their employees more than the market-clearing wage in order to increase their productivity or efficiency, or reduce costs associated with employee turnover, in industries where the costs of.
