Efficiency Enhancing Taxation in Two-sided Markets
(), Marko Koethenbuerger
() and Guttorm Schjelderup
Abstract: This paper examines the efficient provision of goods in
two-sided markets and characterizes optimal specific and ad-valorem taxes.
We show that (i) a monopoly may have too high output compared to the social
optimum; (ii) output may be reduced by imposing negative value-added taxes
(subsidy) or positive specific taxes.
