The Effects of Taxes on the Supply of Labor: with Special Reference to Income Maintenance Programs.
Boskin, Michael Jay
The study builds a theoretical model of the interdependence of the labor supply decisions of family members and applies it to data from the 1967 survey of Economic Opportunity to estimate labor supply curves for population subgroups. The three relevant variables measured are labor supply, wages, and income. The model gives an estimate of the overall response of labor supply to wages and nonwage income. The results are also applied to an analysis of the income redistributive effects of negative income taxes, demo-grants and wage subsidies. (Author)
