The following report evaluates the total economic repercussions of the City of Philadelphia’s Beverage Tax from a macroeconomic perspective. No prior studies have taken on this viewpoint. They, instead, have tended to analyze just part of the overall story, examining (1) how consumers react to a rise in beverage prices, (2) how and which industries will directly suffer as a result, and (3) how the childcare industry is likely to thrive as a result of being subsidized. No prior studies have examined how the introduction of subsidized childcare for low-income households might affect a change in the supply of labor—one of the rationales behind subsidizing child daycare. This analysis incorporates all of the above for a full economic and fiscal evaluation of the Beverage Tax and the programs it supports. (author abstract)
