But that is the extent of the matter; it does not require that the richer pay a higher proportion of their income (or wealth) in taxes. As Young (1990) observes, ``Fairness is the dominant theme in, Recent and notable articles in which equal sacri®ce is a theme are Ok (1995), Berlaint, Smith (1991), pp. The fairness of dynamic tariffs depends on implementation conditions such as: clear, non-economic arguments as justification, guarantying basic-needs fulfilment, decreasing perception that ‘peak use is only for the rich’, and increasing predictability.

In the economic theory of taxation, the relevant idea is the so-called benefit principle, associated with Knut Wicksell and Erik Lindahl, which states that taxes should be proportional to the benefits individuals derive from public goods (Musgrave, 2008;Neumark and McLure, 2016; This paper develops a way of making interpersonal comparisons of percentage changes in welfare when individuals have different preferences.
