Microeconomic Approach to Teaching Tax

2007, American Taxation Association

Jerrold J. Stern


This chapter describes and illustrates in detail selected concepts of the microeconomic approach from a teaching point of view. The purpose of the high level of detail is to facilitate ease of understanding and to demonstrate "teachability" especially for undergraduates. Several sources for teaching materials are also discussed.
