My paper with Andrew Leigh, “Did the Death of Australian Inheritance Taxes Affect Deaths?” has just been published in Topics in Economic Analysis and Policy (click here). Here is my earlier summary of that work.
For me, this is a little bit more than just another published paper. It is, in fact, by my count, my hundredth scholarly publication (including journal articles, chapters and books but not counting things like opinion pieces and articles in the popular press). The first of these — “Knowledge of Growth and the Growth of Knowledge” — came out of my honors thesis (at Queensland) and was published in Information Economics and Policy in 1990. I have also blogged about that work before.
As I have noted earlier, I got to this point with the help of many co-authors but also being fortunate to be in an environment at the Melbourne Business School very conducive to high research productivity.
