Unemployment Benefits as a Means for Optimal Redistribution

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the rationale for unemployment benefits as a complement to optimal nonlinear income taxation. We find under plausible assumptions that the optimal unemployment benefits targeted at the low-skilled will be higher than the pure insurance and efficiency purposes would prescribe. The paper thus gives a theoretical justification for using unemployment benefits for redistribution.
