Abstract

This study examines the income redistributional consequences of the public financing of higher education in Pakistan. The results show that the tax incidence and the subsidy to higher education entail a redistribution from the middle and upper to the lower income groups. Earlier studies of other less-developed countries indicated a redistribution from the lower to the upper income groups.
