  Progressive tax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is also argued that people with higher income tend to have a higher percentage of that in disposable income, and can thus afford a greater tax burden (this is the “vertical equity” argument).
The other is an income effect whereby work effort is increased as the worker must work more hours to attain the same wage in the face of higher taxes.
Unlike the opposing income effect and substitution effect of leisure which may make tax progressivity neutral in terms of working hours, the emigration rate can only increase with the top rates of tax.

 Consumer theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Increasing the income will shift the budget constraint right since more of both can be bought, and decreasing income will shift it left.
The substitution effect is basically a price change that changes the slope of the budget constraint, but leaves the consumer on the same indifference curve.
If the income effect is opposite and stronger than the substitution effect, the consumer will buy more of the good when it becomes more expensive.

 ECN 515 Notes on Chapter 4
The substitution effect refers to the change in the relative prices of X and Y. (Some economists call the substitution effect the "relative-price" effect.) It has to do with how a consumer can trade a good for another good and how the consumer's utility changes as he or she makes the trade.
The substitution effect is the effect of moving from one point on that indifference curve to a second point on the same indifference curve as the price ratio changes.
The income effect is what happens when we take away the income that we had just given the consumer when we measured the substitution effect.

When a cumulative effect type change in accounting principle is made during the year, the cumulative effect on retained earnings is determined as of the beginning of the year in which the change is made.
Accounting records of prior years usually are inadequate to determine the cumulative income effect of the change or to determine pro forma disclosures for prior years when a company changes to the LIFO inventory method from another inventory method.
The cumulative income effect (net of the tax effect) is reported as a separate item of income between extraordinary items and net income.

Countering the substitution effect is the income effect.
More importantly, though, is the other side of the income effect when it comes to the issue of taxes: namely the spending that taxes are used for.
The only way in which the income effect will be "positive" is if there is government waste, that is, that the government is spending money on things which people in a free society wouldn't have purchased with their own money.

In that case as income declines due to the price increase your consumption of that good rises (a positive relationship), although it is rarely the case that you actually see a rise in the consumption of a good as income falls, because the substitution effect is moving in the other direction.
The substitution effect can be shown on the budget constraint/utility curve graph as the difference between the old X and the amount of X which would be consumed if the price where to change but you were compensated for the loss income (in the case of a price rise).
The income effect can be shown on the budget constraint/utility curve graph as the difference between X on the old utility curve with the new budget constraint and X with the new utility curve and the new budget constraint.

 PRC Policy Briefing: How Much Does Additional Income Help Children?
When the income of a family with $15,000 increases by $1,000, the improvement in most outcomes is greater than when the income of a family with $100,000 increases by $1,000.
In one model, I estimated a fairly large effect of income and found that doubling the income of the poorest 20% of families would reduce their teenage daughter's chances of having a baby from 40% to 30%.
This example assumes that we could increase the income of families in a way that did not change their incentive to work or save, and did not reduce the income of families in the upper 80% of the income distribution.

 The Effects of Income on Appliances in U.S. Households
The overall picture of household income on a national scale (Figure 1) follows a classic “bell-shaped” curve.  The highest percentage of households is in the $30,000 to $49,999 range.
The 2001 RECS survey also shows an increase by income in whether the televisions are connected to a cable or satellite system (Figure 3).  Even for the lowest income bracket, the percent of households with cable or satellite television is 64 percent.
The percent of households that have refrigerators with an ice/water dispenser increases from 6 percent to 40 percent as the household income increases Figure 16).

 Negative Income Tax, by Jodie T. Allen: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty
If the accounting period is shorter, say a month, as in the welfare system, and income reporting procedures are lax, potential costs and caseloads might be as much as 70 percent higher than those predicted by the annual income-based models used to estimate the costs of FAP and its early successors.
The income accounting and reporting analysis—backed up by an HEW administrative experiment in cooperation with the Denver welfare department—also drew attention to the fact that many negative tax participants cheat on income reports.
But the irregularity of income sources and shifting family arrangements at the lower end of the distribution make it unlikely that the IRS could prevent widespread fraud unless it converted itself into a facsimile of the much-detested local welfare offices.

indifference curves have relatively little curvature, that indifference curve curvature is associated with the substitution effect, and that therefore the law of demand is likely to hold true for substitutes because of the large aubstitution effect.
The association between indifference curve curvature and the size of the substitution effect was established by Hicks.
Although he no longer mentions the elasticity of substitution, the diagram itself shows the magnitude of the substitution effect depending on the degree of curvature of the indifference curve.

The effect of a price change can be decomposed into two effects; Substitution Effect and Income Effect.
Suppose that your income is $10 per day and the price of a value meal (drink, fries, and hamburger) is $5.
When the price of a good goes up, the income effect leads you to consume either less of it (fulfilling the law of demand, the good is normal), or more of it (violating the law of demand when the good is inferior).

 Income's Effect on Car and Vehicle ownership, worldwide: 1960-2015
The projections are based on an econometrically estimated model that explains the growth of the car/population ratio ("car ownership") as a function of per-capita income; a similar model is used for vehicle ownership.
The model estimations are based on annual data for 26 countries over the period 1960-92; it is the first study to include countries covering the full range of income levels, from lowest to highest.
These income elasticities depend upon per-capita income, ranging from about 2.0, for low- and middle-income levels (that is, ownership grows twice as fast as income), down to zero, as ownership saturation is approached for the highest income levels.
