The marginal cost of public funds (MCF) measures the cost to the economy of raising government revenue. The MCF can be used to guide reform of the tax system and to determine an effcient level of government expenditure. It can also be used as an input into cost-beneffit analysis. Previous applications of the concept have developed a methodology appropriate to single countries. The application of the MCF within the EU context raises several important questions concerning tax and expenditure externalities between member states of an economic union.

It is intended that this represents a setting in which issues relevant to the EU can be addressed.
