III PRICIT Doctoral Workshop

O III PRICIT Doctoral Workshop convoca a todo o persoal doutoral interesado a presentar as súas propostas de investigación para a súa revisión e retroalimentación.

As propostas de investigación deben incluír, normalmente, a seguinte estrutura:

  • Introdución/enunciado do problema/definición.
  • Breve revisión bibliográfica.
  • Desenvolvemento conceptual.
  • Metodoloxía proposta.
  • Resultados previstos.

Cada presentación someterase a un proceso de revisión. Acéptanse tanto as ideas en fase inicial coma os proxectos máis avanzados, pero deben estar o suficientemente desenvolvidos como para que a retroalimentación poida ser útil.
O Workshop tamén ofrece dous debates principais, e a oportunidade de recibir asesoramento sobre a elaboración da estratexia máis eficaz para a redacción e presentación de traballos en revistas de prestixio.

A actividade é gratuíta (as comidas e cafés están incluídos) e é posible asistir sen presentar ningún traballo. O alumnado de doutoramento nas fases iniciais, que aínda non teña desenvolvido unha proposta, tamé será benvido, e se lle anima a asistir.

 

Datas importantes:

Todas as solicitudes serán en inglés e deben ser enviadas a  nun único  arquivo de PDF. As dúbidas poden ser enviadas ao mesmo email.

  • Data límite para envío de propostas: 15 de febreiro de 2023
  • Notificación de aceptación: 28 de febreiro de 2023

JRC B2 Seminar: "Taxing Households Energy Consumption in the EU: the Tax Burden and its Redistributive effect" - Antonio F. Amores

Abstract

The taxation of energy consumption is a central topic in the current policy debate of the European Union. While raising energy taxation is part of the European Commission's strategy for achieving its 2030/50 climate targets, the ongoing dramatic increases in the price of energy products are raising calls for reducing their taxation. Therefore, a close consideration of the incidence and redistributive effects of energy taxation is crucial to design compensatory measures and to ensure support for the Green transition. In this paper, we employ the EUROMOD microsimulation model to estimate the burden and the redistributive impact of energy consumption taxation on households across Member States. In doing so, we break down the role played by differences in consumption patterns, rates of taxation and their regressivity. We find that countries where energy taxation is the highest are often not the ones where its incidence on household income is the strongest. At the same time, the highest inequality impact is not always taking place in countries with the most regressive energy taxation. We therefore stress the importance of considering, not only the level of energy consumption taxation, but also its regressivity and its incidence over household income when assessing its inequality cost.

He currently focusses on Indirect and Green Taxation (developing the EUROMOD microsimulation model Indirect Tax Tool and linking emissions to it). He has also wide experience in projects related with supply-use and input-output tables and on Productivity. Antonio previously worked for the Andalusian Regional Statistical Office and the Spanish Trade and Economic Office (Embassy of Spain in Chile). He is also Associate Professor in Pablo de Olavide University (Seville, Spain) with more than ten years’ of active experience in Quantitative Methods for Economics, on permanent special leave to serve at the European Commission since 2012.

JRC B2 Seminar: "Mispriced Authority: Arbitrage and Internal Capital Markets of Multinationals" - Anna Abate Bessomo

Abstract

Using the example of internal capital markets of multinational enterprises, I show theoretically that policies ignoring the internal allocation of authority, such as arm’s length transfer pricing, have negative consequences if decision-making is (partly) centralised. I show that these policies result in profit shifting through interest rate arbitrage, increase the tax elasticity of investment, and disincentivises decentralisation to local joint venture partners.
