Unformatted text preview: c * t ,l * t and k * t +1 uniquely identiﬁes a sequence of b t that is a part of competitive equilibrium. Candidate wage and rate of return on capital is given by ( 15 ). Therefore, from the FOC ( 9 )-( 12 ) we have 1-τ lt 1 + τ ct =-U * lt F * lt U * ct (1 + τ xt ) U * ct 1 + τ ct = β U * ct +1 1 + τ ct +1 ± (1-τ xt +1 )(1-δ ) + (1-τ kt +1 ) F * kt +1 ² (20) U * ct 1 + τ ct = β U * ct +1 1 + τ ct +1 R bt +1 any two of the four taxes can be chosen such that the above conditions hold. 2.1 Ramsey problem The Ramsey problem is the following max c t ,k t +1 ,l t ∞ X t =0 β t U ( c t ,l t ) 14...
