Blonigen, Ronald B. Davies, Glen R. Waddell, and Helen NaughtonDepartment of Economics, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1285, USAThis Draft: November 2005Hints4. Use color. 5. Font size is critical.Font SizeThis is 36This is 28This is 24This is 20This is 16This is 12This is 10Hints6. Avoid lots of text.How many of you are listening right now?We develop the first theory driven weighting scheme for use in international taxation for our econometricsAnselin (1988) notes need for theory to choose weights, theory specified weights are importantImproves on existing literature which finds weak evidence of tax competition, at best significant coefficients 50% of the time.Our weights are driven by market potential, i.e. the domestic market plus access to other countries, including the parent countryBaldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)This is better.We develop the first theory driven weighting scheme for our econometricsAnselin (1988) notes need for theory to choose weightsImproves on existing literature which finds weak evidence of tax competition.Weights driven by market potential, i.e. the domestic market plus access to othersBaldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)Hints7. Limit animation.This looks really stupid.This takes forever to show up.The StripteaseItIsntAs CoolAs You Hoped.Hints8. Explain what and why in the first few slides.Our GoalIs there empirical evidence forTax competition overall?Does the tax in one country depend on the taxes set elsewhere?An impact of EU expansion on tax competition?Answer: yes on both countsTaxes in one country depend on taxes in othersEU members are more sensitive to the taxes of other members than they are to non-membersHints9. Use a roadmap.Road mapTheory: what weights to use?Data/Empirical approachResultsRobustness ChecksConclusionHints10. Lit reviewsOnly tell them whats criticalDont use listsGive where its from Baldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)Hints11. Read your equationsHints12.
