(Piketty's) Wealth Tax and its effect on Innovation
Monday, 23. September 2019
Contact: Charlotte Rochell
In his most recent publication, Thomas Piketty suggests all French citizens should receive a lump-sum cash payment of 120,000 EUR from the government when they turn 25. This should be financed by substantially higher wealth tax. The aim of the thesis is to develop a feasibile research question based on the exploration of literature on the effects of wealth taxes and particularly the interplay with innovation. You can develop an idea of an own analytical approach (e.g. within an exposé draft) before contacting me. This will be a discussion base for a personal meeting.
