Marginal effective tax rates on saving in the USA and the UK in 1960, 1970, and 1980, based on King and Fullerton's study, but with different formulae (explained in Appendix C to the chapter), show that they varied widely depending on the asset, industry, and sector providing the savings.

Both rates of return and depreciation ratios were much higher in the years following the Second World War than in the earlier years of the present century. 5. Comparisons are made for the post-Second World War years of the above rates of return and depreciation ratios in the USA and the UK with those derived from conventional estimates using the perpetual inventory method and (for the rate of return) the ratio of net profits to net capital stock. The conventional rates of return and depreciation ratios are appreciably lower, especially for the UK, and various explanations of this are given.

There was, however, strong evidence that ϱ increased markedly after the Second World War, and weaker evidence that it also increased after the First World War. ‘Catch-up’ was quite significant, but only after the Second World War. 6. A constant added to the equation to allow for separate ‘technical progress’ was negative and insignificantly different from zero. An equation of the form was also fitted, allowing for shifts in a from before to after the Second xl SUMMARY World War, and for catch-up.
