Abstract

In this paper we investigate the effect of a tax on land rent on the growth rate of capital in a growing economy with overlapping generations. A tax on land rent has a potential to increase the growth rate of capital. If the model is extended to allow the tax revenue to be refunded to individuals, a tax on land rent may deter growth to the extent that the tax revenue is transferred to the older generation.
