Fiscal Incentives to Work and Marry

Image

Fiscal Incentives to Work and Marry Mike Brewer and Tom Clark show how New Labour's welfare reforms have changed people's financial incentives. No-one now faces poverty or unemployment traps (effective taxation rates of over 100%) though more people are covered by means tested benefits - blunting their incentives to work. It has become less attractive to find a partner and having a child has become more financially rewarding. "The impact on incentives of five years of social security reforms in the UK" is published by Institute for Fiscal Studies
