On Revenue and Welfare Dominance of Ad Valorem Taxes in Two-Sided Markets
(), Marko Koethenbuerger
() and Guttorm Schjelderup
Abstract: A benchmark result in public economics is that it is
possible to increase both tax revenue and welfare by making a monopoly
subject to ad valorem taxes rather than unit taxes. We show that such
revenue and welfare dominance does not hold in two-sided markets.
