A Comparison and Contrast of the Classical and Institutional Theories of Monopoly

Date: August 1949
Creator: Robertson, Jack E.
Description: "... it will be the purpose of this paper to search the writings of Classicism as exemplified by Smith, Say, Ricardo, Senior, Mill and Marshall, and the works of Veblen for their theories of monopoly. By a contrast and comparison of these theories, it is hoped that the information developed may become the basis for checking any hidden holdovers from these two schools and, by showing their origin, to develop some understanding of a singularly complex problem of the modern world."--leaf 2

A Critical Analysis of the Equity and Efficiency of the Nigerian Personal Income Tax System

Date: December 1978
Creator: Inyang, Efanga
Description: The purpose of this study is to analyze the system of personal income taxation in Nigeria, especially with respect to its administration, equity, and effects on efficient resource usage. There have, in the past, been numerous complaints that the personal income tax in Nigeria does not yield enough revenue for the state governments, primarily because of widespread avoidance and evasion of the tax, especially by persons who do not derive income from wages and salaries. This study examines this problem in light of questions as to how the tax evolved, how important it is to state governments, how efficient and equitable it is, what administrative problems it faces, and what reforms can be implemented to best solve existing problems.
