Abstract

In this reply to Paul Trampe’s comment, “The EITC Disincentive: The Effects on Hours Worked from the Phase-Out of the Earned Income Tax Credit,” Econ Journal Watch 4(3): 308-320, I discuss several omissions, errors in interpretation, and problems with his empirical analysis.

This article is a response to The EITC Disincentive: The Effects on Hours Worked from the Phase-out of the Earned Income Tax Credit by Paul Trampe (EJW, September 2007).

Response to this article by Paul Trampe: The EITC Disincentive: A Reply to Dr. Hilary Hoynes (EJW, January 2008).
