Incentives in the Welfare State: Lessons for would-be welfare states
Abstract: This paper deals with economic incentives and
welfare-state arrangements in OECD countries. This paper emphasises what
may be called "dynamic" incentive issues, i.e. incentive effects that
envolve over time. The discussion also covers the interplay between
incentives and social norms among individuals, including endogenous changes
in these norms.
