The conclusions of the Mirrlees Review are discussed in a special issue of Fiscal Studies, edited by Paul Johnson and Gareth Myles.
In this issue we have republished the final concluding chapter of the review, which appears here as the next paper, and published responses by five leading experts in the field. This introductory article starts by describing very briefly what the following papers cover, and then goes on to explore three broad themes that are important to the review and which are picked up on in one or more of the subsequent articles.
The following papers comment on the review from a range of viewpoints. The authors are John Creedy (University of Melbourne), Chris Evans (University of New South Wales), Roger Gordon (University of California, San Diego), Louis Kaplow (Harvard Law School) and Christian Keuschnigg (University of St Gallen).
