Abstract:Finally, the third essay estimates the implicit social welfare functions of the USA and Brazil using PSID and PNAD for 1990 on direct taxes. Specifically, a non-parametric method is used to compute the density of the skills distribution and the social welfare functions. Under assumptions on the households' preferences the estimations suggest that both American and Brazilian social welfare functions are concave and Paretian; however only the estimated Brazilian social planner can be considered utilitarian.
