Abstract

In this paper I analyse the impact of public expenditure and income taxation on intergenerational inequality for seventeen countries. Age group Gini index is calculated by using data from the Luxemburg Income Study LIS. Results are very robust in demonstrating that only income taxation is able to influence the level of intergenerational inequality, since it directly a¤ects the wealth of households. Otherwise, public expenditureseems to have no impact on individuals- welfare, even if we consider public expenditure components which should be tailored for specific cohorts.Different hypotheses on standard errors are considered, in order to detect the presence of one-way or two-way fixed effects.
