Slope versus Elasticity and the Burden of Taxation.
Graves, Philip E.; And Others
Journal of Economic Education, v27 n3 p229-32 Sum 1996
Criticizes the standard presentation, in introductory economics, of the burden of a tax as an application of elasticity. Argues that using the slopes of a supply and demand curve is the simplest and easiest way to clarify tax incidence. Includes three graphs illustrating this approach. (MJP)
