      Résumé : "Comprehensive or Separate Income Tax ? A sufficient Statistics Approach"

      • In this paper, I investigate how to tax the different sources of income of taxpayers. I consider on optimal nonlinear income tax model with many sources of income. I first exhibit a specification where the optimal tax system consists in a nonlinear schedule that applies to the sum of all income - a comprehensive income tax system - and another specification where the optimal tax system consists in a nonlinear schedule specific to each income - a separate income tax system. In the more general environment I specialize the tax schedule to be combination of these two polar systems : the tax system is restricted to be the sum of a comprehensive personal income tax schedule and of income specific tax schedules, I derive an optimal ABC formula for each of these schedules. I also derive a condition expressed in terms of empirically meaningful sufficient statistics under which decreasing the indexation of the personal income tax base on one income and compensating the revenue loss with a lumpsum or a proportional increase in the taxation of that income is socially desirable.

      Résumé : "Mass Refugee Inflow and Long-run Prosperity : Lessons from the Greek Population Resettlement", joint with Seyhun Orcan Sakalli.

      • This paper investigates the long-term consequences of mass refugee inflow on eonomic development by examining the effect of the first large-scale population resettlement in modern history. After the Greco-Turkish war of 1919-1922, 1.2 million Greek Orthodox were forcibly resettled from Turkey to Greece, increasing the Greek population by more than 20% within a few months. We build a novel geocoded dataset locating settlements of refugees across the universe of more than four thousand Greek municipalities that existed in Greece in 1920. Exploiting the spatial variation in the resettlement location, we find that localities with a greater share of refugees in 1923 have today higher earnings, higher levels of household wealth, greater educational attainment, as well as larger financial and manufacturing sectors. These results hold when comparing spatially contiguous municipalities with identical geographical features and are not driven by pre-settlement differences in initial level of development across localities. The long-run beneficial effects appear to arise from agglomeration economies generated by the large increase in the workforce, occupational specialization, as well as by new industrial know-hows brought by refugees, which fostered early industrialization and economic growth.
