About the Laffer Curve

What it is – How it works
By staff reporters

DEFINITION:

In economics, the Laffer curve is a representation of the relationship between rates of taxation and the resulting levels of government revenue.

The Laffer curve claims to illustrate the concept of taxable income elasticity—i.e., taxable income will change in response to changes in the rate of taxation. http://www.HealthDictionarySeries.org

HISTORY:

The Laffer Curve is a theory developed by supply-side economist Arthur Laffer to show the relationship between tax rates and the amount of tax revenue collected by governments.

The curve is used to illustrate Laffer’s main premise that the more an activity such as production is taxed, the less of it is generated. Likewise, the less an activity is taxed, the more of it is generated.
