Identifying Voucher Plans without Welfare Losses.
Jackson, Raymond
Journal of Economic Education, v30 n2 p175-83 Spr 1999
Observes that the efficiency case against vouchers in textbook comparisons with income transfers is frequently incorrectly stated, or overstated. Clarifies the debate by deriving the algebraic relations under which a voucher is equivalent to an income transfer, generates no welfare loss, and when conventional views of income transfer superiority hold.
