This chapter illustrates how strong international tax competition in the era of globalization imposes severe constraints on capital income taxation that thereby put into question its standing in the public finance of the welfare state. It develops a political economy model to assess how the forces of globalization affect the taxation of capital income. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 2 provides a simple analytical framework for the study of capital taxation in the presence of international capital mobility, analyzing, in particular, the tax structure in the political–economy equilibrium. Section 3 applies the model for the analysis of international tax competition, while Section 4 concludes.

Keywords:   international tax competition, globalization, capital income tax, welfare state, public finance
