      This paper proposes a model oriented towards integrating farm households' production and consumption decisions into a unified theoretical and econometric framework. It is argued that, in contrast with other forms of economic ...
    • Figueroa Benavides, Eugenio; López Vega, Ramón (Universidad de Chile, Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2011)
      We show that the tax system in Chile is insufficient, inefficient and inequitable. Insufficient because it does not yield enough revenues for the state to promote human capital development and to face poverty in a more ...
    • Chambers, Robert G.; López Vega, Ramón (Elsevier, 1993)
      This paper compares the welfare effects of ad valorem and fixed-price distortions for an open economy. In the case of export protection, domestic factor growth is much more likely to be immiserizing when fixed-price ...
    • López Vega, Ramón; Figueroa Benavides, Eugenio; Gutiérrez, Pablo (Springer, 2016)
      Most previous studies of income inequality have either ignored capital gains or have used taxable realized capital gains to estimate top incomes. Neither of these approaches is fully satisfactory. We apply for the first ...

    • López Vega, Ramón (Universidad de Chile. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2018)
      We study the economy-wide implications of economic power. We examine the distribution of bargaining power between the owners of capital (“the capitalists”) and the owners of human capital (“the workers”) and its effects ...
