Abstract

The cost of COVID-19 rescue packages will likely be partly financed by increased inflation, which will disproportionally affect less-affluent people and workers, including frontline NHS staff. Paweł Bukowski (LSE) and Wojciech Paczos (Cardiff University) argue that to spread that burden more equitably, governments should consider an increase in progressivity of income taxes and an introduction of a temporary wealth tax.
