Abstract

The stabilization effect of nonlinear income taxation is addressed in the standard model of small open economy. It is shown that if income taxation schedule is progressive, the small open economy tends hold saddle-point stability. On the other hand, if taxation on the interest income is regressive, then the small open economy may exhibit sunspot-driven fluctuations or it displays a diverging behavior.
