"The Impacts of a Negative Income Tax in Brazil"
by Wolf, Rayan, Angelo Gurgel, Leonardo Chaves Borges Cardoso, Marcos S Nazareth, Ian Michael Trotter and Erly Teixeira

This paper aims to analyze the impact of the so-called ’Negative Income Tax’ (NIT) policy on household welfare and factor prices in the Brazilian regions. The guiding hypothesis is that the NIT is more effective than the political measures currently considered as elementary to social assistance and income redistribution. To achieve the proposed objectives, the analytical instrument used was the General Equilibrium Analysis Project of the Brazilian Economy (PAEG), an analytical set of static general equilibrium, multiregional and multisectoral. It is shown that the effects of the NIT are more effective than the current social programs, besides allowing the effect to be long-lasting.
