Modelling taxation and redistribution: a discrete active particle kinetic approach
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper a general framework is proposed, suitable for the modelling of the taxation and redistribution process in a closed society. This framework arises within a discrete kinetic approach for active particle systems, and is expressed by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. It is intended to describe the evolution of the wealth distribution over the population, based on the interactions of single individuals. The framework is then employed towards the construction of a toy model, which is analytically and computationally investigated.
