 Ramsey Rule - Economics Dictionary of Arguments
 
Ramsey Rule: The Ramsey Rule in taxation suggests setting tax rates inversely proportional to the elasticities of demand for different goods. It advises imposing higher taxes on goods with inelastic demand (less responsive to price changes) and lower taxes on goods with elastic demand (more responsive to price changes) to minimize distortion and achieve efficient taxation. See also Taxation.
