Abstract:The second essay studies the distributional as well as welfare implication of the inflation tax using a heterogeneous agents growth model that mimics some characteristics of the Brazilian economy. The key findings show that heterogeneity leads to a stronger welfare cost of inflation in terms of aggregate per capita output. Moreover, if the inflation tax is replaced in a revenue neutral way by other alternative distortional income tax regimes, a trade-off between welfare superior and equity improving outcomes becomes apparent.
