Abstract

Robert Joyce examines the problematic implications of linking Child Benefit with income. Those earning between £50,000 and £60,000 will effectively have a higher marginal tax rate. It also creates complexity and incoherence in the welfare system and thus it is unclear whether the net effect of all this will be to improve the welfare system.
