The purpose of this paper is to investigate the fiscal impact of immigration in Europe using a quantile regression approach. These estimation methods provide a richer characterization of the data, allowing us to consider the impact of a co-variate (which one) on the entire distribution and not merely its conditional mean. Using data from European Survey on Living Conditions (EU-SILC), we estimate the net fiscal position of immigrants in Europe between 2007-2015. The net fiscal position is the difference between social services obtained and personal taxes paid leading to be either a fiscal contributor or a fiscal dependent. On average, the fiscal impact of both European and non-European migrants is not different from that of native citizens. Surprisingly, when using a quantile approach, we find that non-EU migrants belonging to the upper tail of the distribution and to the lowest one, are much more contributors as compared with the corresponding native citizens. At last, we find a very contrasting relationship between the fiscal perception of European citizens regarding immigrants and the calculated fiscal impact of immigrants: countries, where immigrants are perceived negatively, are instead countries where migrants are net fiscal contributors and vice-versa [less ▲]

We compare the effects of migration on the production of public goods, income taxes, and on the welfare of residents in the sending and in the receiving country. Migration is driven by income di¤erences between countries. Alternative wage adjustment scenarios are considered: fully flexible wages; upward rigidity, and unemployment. We show that in all scenarios, emigration is welfare detrimental for the origin country. Migration is welfare improving for the destination country in presence of flexible wages and upward rigidity, but it has detrimental effects in presence of unemployment. [less ▲]

We consider an open to trade two-country model with two vertically differentiated goods and relative preferences in consumption. These preferences are such that consumers obtain satisfaction from their own consumption in relation to the consumption of the others. Product differentiation is along an environmental quality dimension and countries are asymmetric in average income. Analyzing the equilibrium configuration, we find that, when relative preferences are relegated to the poorer country producing the brown good, the process of trade liberalization can favor the polluting firm, while penalizing the green rival. In these circumstances, trade liberalization can be environmentally detrimental. At the opposite, trade liberalization always favors the green producer when relative preferences are observed in both countries, with possibly positive effects on global emissions. [less ▲]

The purpose of this paper is twofold. We first investigate whether product market regulations affect commodity taxation in open-to-trade economies and second we study the strategic interac- tion in regulatory measures between trading partner countries. We present a two-country general equilibrium model in which destination-based commodity taxes fi nance public goods, and product market regulation affects both the number of fi rms in the market and product diversity. Based on data for 21 OECD countries over the 1990-2008 period, we provide empirical evidence suggesting that product market regulations are strategic complement policies and that domestic regulations have a negative impact on domestic commodity taxation.
