This paper evaluates the macroeconomic effects of taxes on banking in a small open economy in a currency union for three tax alternatives: an additional tax on profits, on deposits, and on loans. We propose a DSGE model with a rich detail of taxes and a banking sector and show that these three taxes are equivalent in their effects on macroeconomic variables.
We present a new Bayesian DSGE model with a banking sector for the Spanish economy, designed to evaluate structural reforms and to decompose the main macroeconomic aggregates into structural shocks. Our analysis highlights the fundamental role of financial conditions during the Great Recession and the subsequent recovery of the Spanish economy.
In this paper we develop and estimate a new Bayesian DSGE model for the Spanish economy that has been designed to evaluate different structural reforms.
