Abstract

Creating a strong sense of reciprocity between the state and its citizens makes it more likely they will pay taxes willingly, says Timothy Besley (LSE). As we emerge from a pandemic that emphasised the importance of mutual obligation, there is an opportunity to persuade higher earners that paying tax is part of that reciprocity. Solutions for funding social care can also build on this.
