The General Principle of Excess Burden Minimization of Overall Commodity Tax
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
This study is therotical and aims to explore the general principle of excess burden minimization of overall commodity tax using the combination methods of graphic analysis, deduction of number simulation, and dynamic optimization theory. This study identifies linearity characteristics formed by the links of tax revenue and excess burden to verify the individual principle of excess burden minimization of overall commodity tax by concavity characteristics. Moreover, the general principle of excess burden minimization of overall commodity tax is further verified by concavity andlinearity characteristics. The dynamic processes of excess burden minimization are changed because of the different features of the links.
