Título: Taxing for the welfare state: public finances and progressivity in the rise of social spending (1910-1970)

Resumen: This project will analyse the relation between the tax structure and the rise of welfare states in the period 1910 to 1970. The focus will be on the distribution of the tax burden and the joint redistributive effects of public finances. By comparing five countries representing the different models of welfare states in the literature (France, Spain, Sweden, the United States and the United Kingdom), we will establish the roles of progressive or regressive taxation in the growth of redistribution.
