Strategical Behavior of Firms and Excise Tax Payment (Revenue Maximization, Profit Maximization, Love, Respect and Trust)

Akin Seber, Andac Arslan

Abstract


In this paper, we analyze the effect on price and quantity traded of a commodity of an excise tax payment under different conditions. First, we analyze the effect of the tax payment as in traditional analysis, where the firm considers tax as a “bad” to be avoided. Next, we propose a new approach for sharing the payment for the firm. Finally, we develop a new philosphical and psychological analysis wehere tax payment may be considered as a “good” to be happily provided by the firm rather than a “bad” that needs totally to be avoided.
