Complexity of taxes and inequalities in France

The aim of this project is to study how the French tax system works and particularly how the political climate affects its efficiency in generating revenues for the State and in redistributing individual revenues. In this context, particular attention will be paid to the factors which determine the complexity of the tax system, both as a product of its development and of the institutional system, and to the role it has played in the development of inequalities.
